Sirince Koyu, Sirince

#2 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Turkish Aegean Coast
Walk down the narrow cobblestoned streets of Sirince Koyu, lined with women selling the handicrafts, organic food, olive oil, and fruit wines the village is famous for. Typical Greek residences from the 19th century house locally styled interiors. Look for a restored Orthodox church in the courtyard of one of them. Legend has it that the small village, settled by freed Greek slaves in the 15th century, was originally named Çirkince or "ugly" in order to keep newcomers away. The governor of Izmir Province changed the name to "pleasant" in 1926. Put Sirince Koyu into our Sirince trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Sirince.

  • Sirince is one of the quiet and beautiful villages of Izmir, especially if you like to drink wine to listen to the head is for you. Looking around and from the Internet, a very overdone village, a small square, two entertainment venues, except for the hotel 10-15, I can say there is not much. If you come to the village for advice, I advise you to experience a peaceful atmosphere with its thick natural architecture and host. When you go to Shiraz, you must never miss the village of mathematics. In the evening, you must go to the Silver cellar and have a band of music accompanied by a glass of wine that is very successful. The villagers who sell the product around are very expensive, everything is sold in exaggeration, I think there is no need. The village is half an hour away from the Church of the Virgin Mary, I recommend you to go to Ephesus. After the Church of the Virgin Mary, there is also the KEY museum, if you have an old car curiosity, don't go there, your eyes will be dazzed.
