What About Gelidonya Lighthouse

The name Gelidonya comes from the meaning of Caledonia "Swallow",

In 1936, it was the highest lighthouse in Turkey with an altitude of 227 m,

Until 1976, it worked with kerosene and until 2004 with butane gas, and the kerosene was carried to the lighthouse with donkeys from a 2 km path,

Taşlık Cape and 5 Islands are on the sea trade route and there are many shipwrecks here due to the reverse tide of the sea currents and that is why the Gelidonya Lighthouse was built,
