This theatre is more preserved than the coliseum in Rome. It has one of the world's best acoustics and really great vibe .It's best for history lovers but nothing much to do .

The acoustic sound from the stands is amazing, I was thrilled to have visited this ancient place. Well worth a visit if you are holidaying in Antalya Turkey.

World's first democratic Parliamet, Lycian League Parliament. Patara and Demre are also the towns where Saint Nicholas, yes Santa Claus, was born and lived.

The Lycian City of Patara was once a flourishing Maritime City built at the edge of the Mediterranean on a coastal plain. Much remains to be seen and explored.

As you enter the ancient city,the history hits you in the face,you get amazed and get lost in history,whats make it a perfect place is first you see the ancient city and then you go to the beach which is also perfect

Patara was an enormously important city in its day. History, location, surviving monuments are all very special. However, for non-specialist and non-history buff. that site could be easily skipped. There are many much better preserved/restored ruins in Turkey.
