Medieval Sinop is a walled city perched on the headland overlooking the dark, chill waters of the Black Sea.Founded by colonists from the Aegean port of Miletus in the 800s BC; Sinop became a major port because of its fine natural harbor. Today it's still a port, and a provincial capital. Besides its medieval city a wall, Sinop offers the Alaettin Mosque (1267) and its medrese, the ruined Balatlar Kilisesi, a Roman temple converted into a Byzantine church, and the Cezayirli Ali Pasha Mosque (1297). A few remains of an ancient Temple of Serapis stand beside the Sinop Museum. Traditional nautical wood carvings, good crystal and the original cotton clothes of the city are praiseworthy and unique. Gerze, 40 kms southeast of Sinop, will provide you with fine beaches, meadows, restaurants and parks. At Boyabat, the largest town of the province, there are many rock tombs and a citadel.
