A fascinating Lycian Necropolis chesttype tombs spread out along the costline at Theminussa near the present day. Ücagiz is the main land cross.
MYRA : Some of the finest example of Lycian funerary architecture are to be found at Myra, near thee expanding present day town of Demre. The site, about a mile from the town includes a vast Roman theatre in good repair and build agains a cliff face that also houses too impressive sets Lcian tombs. Many of the tombs have long cabin features carved in to the rocks, presumably reflecting the domestic architecture of the period. Carvings above are mostly in poor repair but the overall effect to this jumble of the architecture of death is dramatic.
