Rock tombs, Myra, Turkey

Most striking of all the ruins in the ancient Roman cytadel Myra are the rock-cut tombs of the ancient Lycian necropolis. Two burial sites, the river necropolis and ocean necropolis, with frontages resembling classical temples, have been hewn from the cliffs towering above the town. Photo by Caleb Maclennan
