The village of Kaya is a strange experience, it has become a ghost town and stood empty since 1923 when the Greeks left and the Turks arrived. The Turkish families could not settle in the village and decided to move down the valley, the houses have stood empty until this day. With over 1000 houses, a number of churches and the village schools all still in tact it is something unusual to wander the streets, the village has now been declared an historical Museum and is well worth a days visit.
