|The Ruins of Old Greek Village in Cavusin|
According to our guide, this place was once occupied by the Greeks and overtime the erosion and harsh weather condition had made it unsafe to live. The government relocated the inhabitants and the village was abandoned. As we moved up higher grounds, the dwellings around this hillside village become visible and the surrounding landscape depicts a deep red ochre tones, giving Cavusin a distinct look.
Soon the cold wind and the heavy rain forced us to leave this place and we had to reschedule our visit to a much warmer location. We headed to the Pottery Cave Factory in Avanos.
