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.
