Non-touristy Muğla? Visit Hekate in Lagina!
When exploring non-touristy Muğla, most people eventually end up visiting beautiful Stratonikeia, but did you know that there’s another great place to visit just around the corner? Less than 15 km away you’ll find Lagina, which – back in the days – was connected to Stratonikeia by a sacred road. Why sacred, you may ask? Because Lagina ancient site was the cult center (or religious center) of its political counterpart, Stratonikeia. This is a sanctuary dedicated to Hekate, a mysterious cult devoted to the goddess of magic & witchcraft, the moon & the night, and ghosts. If that isn’t enough to consider a visit, the photos in this post may be a better way to convince you!
