World's first democratic Parliamet, Lycian League Parliament. Patara and Demre are also the towns where Saint Nicholas, yes Santa Claus, was born and lived.

The Lycian City of Patara was once a flourishing Maritime City built at the edge of the Mediterranean on a coastal plain. Much remains to be seen and explored.

Patara was an enormously important city in its day. History, location, surviving monuments are all very special. However, for non-specialist and non-history buff. that site could be easily skipped. There are many much better preserved/restored ruins in Turkey.

Wonderfully reconstructed historic site. I love that one building is fully reconstructed to help get a real idea of the scale of ancient architecture. The beach nearby is also lovely with its sandy shores.

The seaside village of Patara was once the capital of the Lycian civilization, and now draws attention for its magnificent views and unspoiled beach. The depth of this 18 km-long beach varies from 200 to 300 metres in certain parts.
