The Lebessos Winehouse & Restaurant, Kayaköy

The Lebessos Winehouse & Restaurant was once the most important house in Kayaköy. Built over 400 years ago, the house was renovated in 1859 by Nicholaus, the then Mayor of Kayaköy, who made it his home. The village of Kayaköy was evacuated between 1915 and 1922, as part of the Greek/ Turkish exchange, and the house stood empty for many years.
