OLYMPOS

Olympos is one of the best peaceful holiday destinations in Antalya. Moreover, it has a beautiful beach, pristine nature, ancient ruins, and a never-ending Chimera fire. The fire has been guiding the sailors for centuries. According to the mythology, this fire burns brightly at night at Olympos, related to the fire-breathing Chimera.

As a part of the Lycian League Council Union, Olympos had 3 votes because of its dense population and strong economic situation. According to historians, the city was founded in the 3rd century BC. Olympos became a pirate city because of its sheltered position. It was used as a base by the pirate Zeniketes, who frightened the Mediterranean people for a long time. The situation continued until the Romans captured Olympos.
