Yesterday  I visited a delightful little Aegean village called SIRINCE, in Turkey just outside of SELCUK / IZMIR. it is only 600 in population and it is surrounded by hills, peach orchards, vineyards and olive groves.
Most of the houses are built in 19TH century or earlier. As well as a mosque, there are also 2 Churches, The St John Baptist Church, set in a beautiful courtyard with a fountain on top of the hill.
It has authentic village atmosphere, famous for producing wine, olive oils and handicrafts.
