Worth a stop, although with churches closed for restoration the ruins become repetitive quickly. U can stroll thru the grounds but not really a long visit.

I am impressed life that was happened in this old town. I think that the life was very hard. I advise you visit this dead town.

We visited the ghost town at 5pm and we think that this is the ideal time. We met 2 other couples on our walk, the sun had lost some of its heat and there was a stillness that only an evening can bring. The walk itself is breath taking both with its views and its steepness. We are in our... More

We went early in the morning and so glad we did. We climbed to the top and only encountered 4 other people, however when we came back down it was much busier and therefore noisier and some of that special atmosphere has been spoilt. Also there is very little shade so heat later in the day could have hindered our... More

We visited here by dolmus from Oludeniz. I would recommend getting here early as there is very little shade. Wear sensible shoes and buy some water from the cafes nearby for the trek. Great views and photo opportunities. Nice way to spend a few hours soaking up some history

We visited this in the evening and trek through to the lower then the top church. The views were incredible was hands down the most beautiful place I have ever been but It wasnt easy. The trek to the lower church was hard enough because of the steep slopes and worth away steps but the upper church i wouldnt advice.... More

I visited with two of my sons at about 6.30pm, we had arranged to have a meal at a local restaurant (Muzzy's Place) and they picked us up from Calis. Lovely way to arrive. Muzzy's gave us a little map and leaflet about the history of the village, very useful as there are few signs and no guidebook. You can't... More

Went here via dolmus from ouldeniz ourselves. Was very hot with not much shelter once at ghost city. You have to pay 5tl and there are families trying to make pound selling hand crafted goods at the entrance. It's slidy under foot with the heat on stones you will need decent shoes to climb the top, some had flip flops... More

We caught a bus to the ghost village, cheap and easy. 5 lira to get in to village.The scale of the old village is amazing, to think it was left so quickly by the Greeks such a long time ago. We walked through the village up to a chapel high on a hill. Very hot as we were there in... More
