At the foot of the Acropolis, right on the beach isthe curious rock formation known as Deliktaş, which roughly translates as'pierced rock'. Some 20 minutes from the hotel is the mystical Mount Chimera,known locally as Yanartaş. It is a popular attraction featuring an ancienttemple near a series of flames erupting from the very bedrock itself. Of themany legends surrounding the place, perhaps the best known is that of the Greekhero Bellerophon and his flying horse Pegasus, who killed the fire-spittingchimera on this very spot. So powerful was this creature that its flames couldnot be extinguished and still burn today.
