The Eternal Flame
One of the highlights of a visit is Chimaera near the ancient city of Olympos. The Chimaera, or mythical fire-breathing monster with the head of a lion, the torso of a goat, and the rear of a snake that allegedly roams the hills are actually a series of eternal flames flickering along the rocky slopes above the ancient city of Olympos, which would account for the Lycians worship of the fire god Hephaestos (Vulcan). But never fear: According to legend, the Chimaera was slain by Bellerophon on his winged horse Pegasus. The fires are caused by the combustion of a predominantly methane gas mixture seeping out of the earth.
