GöCek iN MyTh
Legend has it that Göcek was the home of Daedalus and his son icarus. According to myth, Daedalus was the architect and sculptor who built the labyrinth on Crete. he carved the figure of a cow-headed man, and he created wings for his son using bird feathers held together with wax or tar. Daedalus and icarus were then banished from Göcek, and icarus flew away, carrying his father with him—too close to the sun, which melted the wings. The pair dropped into the sea and drowned. —M.H.
