Welcome to Sirince 🌸

The history of Sirince dates back to 15th century. This beautiful town was formed by those who were fleeing Ephesus. Sirince, originally named Kirkince/Cirkince can simply be translated as “ugly”. Why had locals chosen such a name for their village ? Well, it is believed that that way they could prevent outsiders from coming & living in this lovely town.

During 80s & 90s, Sirince became an authentic spot for tourists. Due to poorly improved roads, it was a bit more challenging to get there than today.Given its unique location in the mountains, it was no surprise that Sirince was to be a popular attraction. In time, with the growing number of tourists, some of the town houses have been restored and turned into restaurants, souvenir shops, hotels.

During your visit to Sirince, you can see the ancient church that has been restored, and spend your afternoon for wine tasting ( you should definitely try damson plum wine btw! ). You should take a stroll along the narrow streets of Sirince and take as many photos as you can. In the end, pamper your tummy with a cup of traditional turkish coffee cooked on sand.


This ancient city is beyond your expectations. This enormous city was the center of religion and culture. Legend has it that Ephesus was founded by the Amazons and named after their leader. Celsus Library, Terrace Houses, The Grand Amphitheatre... The Temple of Artemis, which also known as The Temple of Diana, was also located in Ephesus. Diana was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and the nature.Goddess of Ephesus. Make sure you visit Ephesus during your stay in Turkey.

“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.” said John Muir. Such a writer! And he also stated that, “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”
It is the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from such an inspiring naturalist. He is regarded as the father of the national park system. Did you know that in order to support himself financially, he worked at a carriage parts factory and suffered an injury there which left him blind temporarily ? This injury was a turning point in his life. After he regained his sight and made a decision. He was going to spend the rest of his life for nothing but nature. #johnmuir

good night, sleep tight and don’t let bedbugs bit! 👼🌛
