Kayaköy has been deserted since 1923 and is a ghost town with crumbling buildings. It was home to many Greeks who were forced to abandon their homes after the Greco-Turkish War, where Greece lost badly. The empty, roofless houses, churches, cisterns and fountains now ravaged by time and weather, gives it an ancient look, as if it were centuries old. UNESCO adopted Kayaköy as a World Friendship and Peace Village. It is indeed a grim reminder of what wars can do to a nation and its people.
