Saint Nicholas Church Myra Turkey

Saint Nicholas Church Myra Turkey

On the outskirts of the Turkish town of Demre—up until recently the town was called Kale, but in ancient times Myra—is a church that is associated with Saint Nicholas—Father Christmas, a.k.a. in northern Europe as Santa Claus!

St. Nicholas was born in nearby Patara about A.D. 300 and served as the bishop of Myra later in his life.
