..........................Demre itself is a fairly workaday down dedicated to plastic agriculture. İf it thrives in a greenhouse it will thrive in Demre. A bite to eat, with tomatoes, revived the spirit.



Around the 4th century AD a chap called (latterly) St Nicholas (Santa Claus) was the bishop around these parts and had his own church, as you would expect. It still ain't finished

and beyond.
