We visited the ancient city of Myra on our way out of Antalya. There was a model of it in the Antalya Archaeological Museum:
Myra was an ancient Lycian town, built sometime between 168 BC and 43 AD. It has a nice theater, wonderful tombs cut into the rock cliffs, and a Basilica of St. Nicolas.

Bit of architectural detail from the amphitheater:

And tombs...

Tomb detail of a page handing a warrior his shield:

A little closer up...
