St. Nicholas Church

Date : 14 January 2022
Location : Antalya

Perhaps one of the most interesting locations one could visit within the ancient city of Myra (known as Demre today), this Byzantine era church was constructed by Justinian I on top of the foundations of an older Christian church where Saint Nicholas (who was reknowned for miracles attributed to him and became the source of the Santa Claus story) had served as a bishop and was later buried in (before his remains were transported to Venice during the First Crusade). Abandoned for a while until its 1862 restoration by Russian Emperor Nicholas I, the church continued to function until its final abandonment by the Eastern Orthodox Church in 1923. Accessible as a museum today by the general public, this Church is notable for its remarkable wall frescos and its archiectural as well as religious significance.
