Sura Ancient City in Demre

Sura Ancient City in Demre
Home of the ancient Apollo oracle, Sura or Soura is unspoilt and hardly visited. This  was never a city but simply a residence for the priests there and now remains as a rock cut terrace.

Hugely popular across the ancient world, pilgrims would come to stay in the 12 chamber keep. These pilgrims would present roasted meat to the priests who would throw it into the sand, most likely a well, where fish were attracted by the food and from the movements of the fish predictions were given.

In the 4th century AD, the oracle rituals were carried out in the Temple of Apollo Surios and in the nearby sacred spring that still flows today.  After the suppression of the pagan rituals at the end of the 4th century AD two Byzantine churches were built, one behind the temple and the other one in the acropolis.
