Don't bother coming here until 2019. It's closed for restorations and there is no way of getting in. Foreman would not let me in either. Waste of time for now

Divriği is a pretty little town in the middle of a wide, green, sweeping mountain valley. The landscape is beautiful, but the main reason to come out here is its 13th-century mosque complex famous for its elaborate and highly imaginative stone-carved decoration. The architecture is...More
