A street in Sirince village. Izmir, Turkey. 2003.

 
A street 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 origin of this name is not known for certain, but it is rumored that it was chosen more than 600 years ago to conceal the village's existence and attractiveness from people who lived in the valley below. 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
