Seems like a pretty interesting ladscape! Would love to see more of these location. It also seems pretty turkish, with a lot of the classic elements of their architecture. It is in ruins? Or it's used until now as a church or something?

yeah it doesnt seem as so different from Turkish architecture. now inside of the church cannot be used, hope it will be better
