Abandoned house in Sirince village. Izmir, Turkey. 2003.

 
Abandoned house in Sirince village. Izmir, Turkey. 2003. Sirince with its historical unique architecture is a well protected village, 8 km from Selçuk district of Izmir Province in Turkey. The first settlement of the village now known as Sirince probably occurred after the collapse of Ephesus, when a small group of people left the city and moved to the mountains.The oldest international travel reports of the village date back to Edmund D. Chishull, who toured Anatolia between September 1698 and February 1702. In his book Turkey Travels and Return to England he writes about leaving Tire on April 30, 1699, bound for Ephesus.Settlement Sirince once had 1,800 houses; today only about 200 are standing, mostly on the village's southern and western slopes. If you climb away from the village to the east, then look back over the southern slope, you can recognize where its houses used to stand. But many of the farmhouses, monasteries, and churches in and around Sirince have disappeared.
