“Interesting enough for a nice day trip”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The best part of this visit is the drive from Antalya. The church is a major pilgrimage site for Russians during the high season. Take your time driving here and the same going back to Antalya.

“Santa Clause Church”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The impressive statue outside is the first thing to hit you, then as you walk into the church itself the markings on the walls which some or discolored but you can still see them some of them faintly.
Then our guide took us through to look at the original floor well part of anyway, then we saw "St Nicholas" toom it's protect behind a glass panel to protect it as we were told that people were actually taking parts of it which does seem a bit weird.

“Discovering the real story about Santa!”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

Visit this ancient church, travel through time and get to know the real story of Santa. Wish Turkish Governmet had this place in better situation, you can still find some ancient paintings.
