Ancient city of Myra by alanaplin on Flickr.

Via Flickr:
Myra was founded in 5th C BC. The rock tombs date from the 4th C BC. Most of the tombs are now plain but when discovered in 1840 the tombs were colourfully painted red, yellow and blue. The entire cliff face must have once been a bright riot of colour. The Greco-Roman theatre is the largest in Lycia and one of the main attractions of Myra, still in good shape. City was mostly abandoned in 11th C. City was visited by Paul, Luke and Aristharkus (Acts 27:5/6)
