Burial Tombs of Myra

The burial tombs of Myra stand out in a cliff near the present day city of Demre on the Lycian Coast of Turkey along the Mediterranean Sea. Myra was one of the notable cities in the Lycian League, with references dating back to 100 BC, although estimates are it may predate that era. The dozens of elaborate tombs overlook a massive ampitheater that still stands today. (c) 2010 Tom Kelly
