Sirince is a small town in the Izmir province of Turkey. Sirince was settled when Ephesus was abandoned in the 15th century, but most of what one sees today dates from the 19th century. There is a story that the village was settled by freed Greek slaves who had initially named the village Çirkince (meaning "Ugly" in Turkish) to deter others from following them. The village's name was changed to Sirince (meaning "Pleasant") in 1926.
