The underwater city and the amazing Lycian rock tombs and amphitheater will take you back to antique times.

Not far from Demre is the ancient Dolhiste, which is called the "underwater city", because one of the main attractions here is the ruins of a sunken settlement, which was at the first part of the mainland with a length of 7 kilometers. The city sank due to a massive earthquake and is now almost completely hidden by sea waters. All this is presented on the excursion Demre-Mira-Kekova from Antalya.

The historical excursion Demre-Myra-Kekova is very rich in sights that are conveniently selected along the route, and that is why many tourists rush to see them all in person. In the fourth century BC, this area became the capital of the ancient and influential state of Lycia, which flourished in those days. Many times they tried to conquer or destroy the city, but time after time brave warriors fought back the enemies and restored their architecture.

The Lycian rock tombs in the ancient Myra are a truly unique and unrepeatable sight that will take your breath away. The richest and noblest citizens of the state rested in this kind of necropolis, and the construction of these structures began from the very first days of their birth. The Lycians believed that after death a person should be as close to God as possible, and therefore they built their last refuge closer to heaven, on huge rocky slopes made of powerful stone.

A huge Greco-Roman amphitheater, where the main entertainment events and gatherings of the city's residents were held, has been perfectly preserved to this day. Thanks to the perfect acoustics, the sound is distributed in such a way that the actors and performers can be heard from anywhere in the theater. That you can also see with your own eyes during the tour Demre-Mira-Kekova from Antalya.
