Why not discovering a Citta slow city during Citta Slow Sığacık tour? The little and cute town of Sığacık is proud of being the first Citta Slow in Turkey.
Sığacık was the northern port of Teos in the Antique era, and today it is a district that changed with the Teos Marina and hosts increasing numbers of visitors. Sığacık hosts world-famous Akkum and Ekmeksiz beaches with their glistening sands and clean sea and has many hotels and hostels. Even though the Sığacık Port is not a place to swim, the visitors can discover the Papaz Boğazı, Taş Ada, Azmak, Aktaşlı and Çamağız areas on daily boat tours.
Sığacık Castle, which was built between 1521-1522, during Suleiman the Magnificent’s Rhodes campaign and served as a naval base, in addition to defending the coastal village, and later became used as a customs control center. Although it had two floors when it was built, only one floor remains today and the walls of the castle are reached with hidden stairs.
As the Slow City started moving, a serious amount of tourism started at the Sığacık Castle. The local market on Sundays became a popular weekend destination. Local producers sell their products and women exhibit their handwork. Thus it is certainly the right place to taste delicious traditional homemade food in the bazaar of the town. Women living in Seferihisar and inside the castle sell the desserts and foods they prepare in front of their houses.
Because The cozy town of Sığacık is always calm and the narrow streets welcome you to get lost in dignity during the Citta Slow Sığacık tour. Depending on group gusto, we have the chance to visit Jewelry, Leather, Carpet or Ceramic centers.
