Ephesus was an ancient port city whose well-preserved ruins are in modern-day Turkey. The city was once considered the most important Greek city and the most important trading center in the Mediterranean region. Throughout history, Ephesus survived multiple attacks and changed hands many times between conquerors. It was also a hotbed of early Christian evangelism and remains an important archaeological site and Christian pilgrimage destination.
Sirince Village was formed when people were fleeing Ephesus. They settled in the mountains and named the village Cirkince which translated into ugly. If there is a place called heaven on earth, Sirince must be a part of paradise. This is the only willage in the Aegean region which has both a Greek Orthodox church and a Moslem mosque side by side.
