The tombs are located next to an amphitheatre, and together they make a fascinating visit. It is better to avoid very hot days since the site is located 2 km from the bus station. It is a nice walk and taxis are also available.

If you make the day trip from Antalya, it is a long day and I consider the rock tombs in Myra to be the highlight. A very picturesque place with the tombs in the vertical cliffs of the mountain and the theater next to them....More

Amazingly there are a lot of places like this in Turkey. Just dotted about. Amazing to think what was going on 2000 years ago. Take a seat in the amphitheater and soak up[ the atmosphere (and sun).

You will be shocked and amazed by mystique (and bit scary) rock-cut tombs- unbelievable what people were able to make 2000 years ago. The tombs look like ancient houses and temples. It is said that this was the site of one on the wealthiest towns...More

This unique place is a must see. Tombs are amazing remainder of mysterious Lycians - people originated from Crete island but expelled by Minos, the first king of Crete (son of Zeus) and settled in Turkey.

Myra is remembered first of all by the abundance of tombs carved into the mountain, which towers over a large Roman theater. Most of the rock tombs are designed in "apartment" type, but there are some of a temple design. One of the tombs is...More

We visited as part of a group tour, and so only saw the western necropolis. This is one of the best preserved necropolis in Lycia, and well-worth visiting. I would like to have seen the so-called Painted Tomb in the eastern necropolis, but we did...More
