Sirince
The first settlement of the village now known as Sirince probably occurred after the collapse of Ephesus, when a small group of people left the city and moved to the mountains. Monastery ruins in the area耀mall, relatively unimpressive structures妖ate back to the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries.
Old maps show the village痴 name variously as Kyrkindje, Kirkindsche, Kirkidje, Kirkica, Kirkinca謡hich may date from these monastic settlements傭ut the village痴 more well-known name before Sirince was actually ヌirkince.
The earliest demographic information recorded about the village dates from 1919. This first census reveals that 11,100 Muslims, 9,000 Greeks, 79 Armenians, and 145 Jews were living in the area. 典he 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.
Sirince once had 1,800 houses; today only about 200 are standing, mostly on the village痴 southern and western slopes.Today, Sirince痴 heritage, architecture, and beautiful location mean tourism plays a major role in the local economy. Even so, Sirince is a working village, too洋ost of the people who live here travel to the surrounding orchards, olive groves, and fields to make their living. Depending on the season, grapes or peaches are brought to the village square and sent to distant markets. In winter months villagers pick olives and take them to nearby olive presses.
