If you have time while visiting Konya you should visit this lovely village. Take bus 64 from Aladdin Hill at the top end of Mevlana Street. Busses leave every 30 minutes and takes about 25 minutes. Get out at the last stop in the village which is at the old Byzantine Church , then you can walk back through the... More

Perhaps the highlight of our trip to Konya was this beautiful village located just outside of Konya. To get there simply take a bus which leaves every 30 minutes from Aladdin Hill and will take ~20-30 to reach by bus. It is a well preserved little village with a lot of church history. Unfortunately they made some poor attempts to... More

Sille is a historical city where Christians and Muslims lived together. It has old churches and mosques but especially there is one well preserved old Chuch worth to see. Also the houses carved into the stone is interesting to see.

Sille is such a relaxing little village surrounded by the mountains. It was a perfect place for us to drink tea or coffee or to eat after a long day at Konya Museums. We weren't really into walking. So we stopped at the Pottery Museum and Shop at the very entrance to Sille, saw an old hamam, and bought a... More

It takes just about 30 minutes by bus. The view is breathtaking as you can feel old village around mountain and with small river. There are some historical buildings. Cafes and restaurants are around. I came here on the day and on night. On night time, having dinner in Sille is beautiful experience.

Best known for it stone houses and early Christian cave churches, the Ottoman-era village of Sillt was refreshingly tranquil. We also visited a restored Fourth Century Greek church built on the orders of Constantine and named for his mother, Aya Eleni. The restored frescoes were a bit gaudy, but we could peer through doorways at the side of the altar... More

Last week we were in Sille. It's a lovely and still village, but we just had a bad experience when eating lunch there. The name of the restaurant is "Kozana", which is near the old church. They were so deceitful, brought us more food (in fact it was not food, and just a breakfast!) than we ordered, and of course... More

This antique village is being more and more popular. The Konya municipality provides public transportation and it is now easier to reach. The village is peaceful and harbors handcrafters and artists. Restaurants and small boutique hotels are present. There are old churches, mosques, a lake for picnic and maybe for fishing. Nice place to discover if you like to walk.... More
