The town of Demre is also referred to by the name of the castle. There are 9 villages connected to the province. Indigenous people mainly generate income from agriculture, animal husbandry and forestry. At the same time, the locals can also make money by hand-making their hand. These hand-omissions also have a local reputation. The history of the province dates back to ancient times. It is also claimed that Santa Claus was born in this region. For this reason, Santa Claus activities are organized every year on December 6th. Even if there are not many historical ruins in the old period, there is a theater which can be protected by daylight and reach with the least damage. It is also known as one of the most important cities of Lycia, which has the name Myra in ancient times. At the same time, the tombs from the time of the Roman Empire can be seen in the area.

Demre Places to Visit

The Church of Santa Claus, located in this region, is extremely well suited for those who like to dive and explore historic areas, especially the foreign tourists. The Russian-born tourists, who came to the church in a certain period of the year, come to this church and worship. The reason for this is that Santa Claus, his real name, Saint Nicholas, has been giving gifts to children with special characteristics and ill-health throughout his life, and he still talks about goodness in his name even after his death because of his well-being. Therefore, for the tourists coming from abroad, this church seems to be the same value as we do not go to Hajj. Although this ear is interesting at first, it is actually a little known but very accurate. Today, the church has been converted into a museum and serves as a museum for tourists. At the same time, the Santa Claus sculpture here also caused some political problems in the last years. The reason for this is that the Santa Claus statue there was specially built by the Russians. But the Municipality of Demre wants to build a sculpture of its own production here, so it is a new sculpture built by the Russians, instead of raising them to the mosque. In this case, he received a great reaction from Russia and caused more serious problems.

Apart from the church, we recommend you to visit Myra, Andrea and Simena antique cities and rock tombs when you come across this district.
