A Trip for those who wish to visit the real Santa who lived and died in today’s town Demre, between Kas and Antalya on the Coast of Mediterranean. Saint Nicholas was the famous Bishops of Myra in Demre 5’th Century, who secretly helped people and become a legend and kids favourite hero. The real-life Father Christmas, Saint Nicholas, is buried near his birthplace of Demre, a town on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, in the church that bears his name. The church still has many well-preserved wall paintings and ornaments. Although the church is modest and small, it is probably that reason that it’s more likeable as compared to bigger complex constructions
