Description

St Nicholas (also known as Santa Claus) was laid to rest in a grave below the church in Antalya in AD 343, where he had previously served as bishop. Years later, on top of the foundations of the old church, a new St Nicholas Church was built. The beautiful Byzantine frescoes and mosaic tile floors are also notable.
