The Turquoise Coast Sights

Updated 11/21/2013

Fodor's Review

Andriake, the port of ancient Myra, was a major stopover on the Egypt-to-Rome route that supplied most of Rome's wheat. St. Paul changed ships here on his journey to Rome in 60 AD; and Hadrian built a huge granary on the site (it's hidden in the bushes south of the road just before you get to the modern port of Demre, and is also clearly visible from the Kaş-Demre road, just west of Demre, as you come around the last bend). Recent excavations found a synagogue in the

same area. If you're willing to ford the waist-deep water of the creek, Üçağız is about a seven-hour walk on the Lycian Way with several pretty costal sections.
