Saint Nicholas Cathedral

In Demre, the ancient Myra, is the St. Nicholas cathedral undergoing excavations. Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of the Greek sailors and the Santa Claus of American children, was born at Patara but was the bishop of the Byzantine city of Myra. The body of St. Nicholas was buried in a sarcophagus within the cathedral until 1087 when some Italians stole it and moved it to Bari. The original cathedral was probably built in the 3rd century AD and has been rebuilt and restored several times. Each year on December 6th, the saint's name day is celebrated here with great pomp by an ecumenical group of Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant clergy.
