House in Sirince village. Izmir, Turkey. 2003.

 
House in Sirince village. Izmir, Turkey. 2003. Sirince with its historical unique architecture is a well protected village, 8 km from Selçuk district of İzmir Province in Turkey.Old maps show the village's name variously as Kyrkindje, Kirkindsche, Kirkidje, Kirkica, Kirkinca which may date from these monastic settlements, but the village is more well-known name before Sirince was actually Cirkince. 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. The Exchange of Turkish and Greek Populations Treaty was signed as part of the Treaty of Lausanne. It went into effect on November 30, 1923. Under its terms, all Turkish people living in Greece and Greek people living in Turkey were to be exchanged. The immigrants from the Thessaloniki area came by ship to Izmir and some were settled in Sirince.
