The Chimaera

Key information: The Chimaera

    • Walk to the fascinating perpetual flames of the ancients? Chimaera, which, visible from sea at night, were important navigationally as well mythically.
    • A tedious, sweaty night walk up rough steps, along with every tourist in the area, is made worthwhile (just) by this weird phenomenon. Side-trip from the Lycian Way.
