The Sille neighborhood was the center of several different cultures and civilizations, living in harmony in the forgotten ages of ancient history. Today, the neighborhood with its pristine historical texture welcomes visitors from every culture to the once Seljuk district of central Turkey's Konya.

The neighborhood, which was one of the important centers of the early Christian period and has hosted many civilizations with its 5,000-year history, draws attention with its texture mainly composed of historical houses.

Sille, one of the places most frequented by the people of Konya, became an attraction center for tourists with intense social spaces thanks to its transformation not long ago.

There is churches and mosques in the neighborhood. One of the church is (the) Hagia Elena Church that was built in A.D. 327. (after restoration works) this place became a location that should be visited and seen. With the promotion of this area, local and foreign tourists will visit quite frequently,

Sille is especially beautiful in winter but in winter, the density decreases. Foreign tourists say that this place gives the impression of a small Cappadocia, especially because of its caves. Historical houses and places can be visited and be worthwhile in terms of photography.
