Lycian Turkey by George E. Bean
Lycia has always been the least accessible and least visited region of Western Turkey. Locked in their mountainous region, its people still maintain the distinctive and independent spirit that can be discerned in the ruined cities of their forebears. This detailed travel companion to the Lycian area of Turkey focuses on the history and archaeologial sites of the region. The author examines Myra, with its famous church of St Nicholas (Santa Claus), Xanthus, Arycanda and the proliferation of Lycian rock tombs which can be found at various sites.
