The history of the basket houses: hidden gems in Turkey
A lot of times, when visiting historical sites in Turkey, we are overwhelmed by majestic buildings, rock-solid stonework, and grand theaters. It doesn’t matter if the buildings have been restored or not; each site has its own magic. But sometimes, all it takes to be amazed are a few modest houses, giving an insight in a different period in history, when families from African countries were brought to Turkey to work as farmhands for the Ottoman rules and their armies. These woven houses or basket houses of which only very few are still standing are part of the hidden gems in Turkey. We had read about them on the Dalyanlı website a few years ago and were intrigued enough to know we would have to go and have a look at them one day.
