Gülpinar

Gulpinar is a pleasant village near Tuzlu Köyü. It has an impressive mosque and is the location of the famous ancient site of Apollo Smintheous.

The Mosque at Gulpinar

The nearby village of Tuzla might look like the sort of place you would pass by quickly and seemingly of little interest but dig a bit deeper and you will find that there are a couple of old buildings here ( the mosque and part of a school building ) built by Ottoman Sultan Murat some 700 years ago.

As you drive through Tuzla you will notice that the village has some hot water springs and salt which have yet to be exploited for commercial purposes.
