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.
