 was abandoned by Greek Christians in 1923, and is today visited by tourists. In the 1700s, Kayaköy was built on the site of the ancient city of Carmylessus (or Karmylassos). In 1900, its population was about 2000, mostly Greek Christians. But after the Greco-Turkish War, Kayaköy was mostly abandoned after a population exchange agreement was signed by the Turkish and Greek governments in 1923.

     Kayaköy may be the inspiration behind "Eskiþehir", the imaginary village chosen by Louis de Bernières as the setting of his 2004 novel "Birds Without Wings".
