Unique Mugla Houses and Their Unique Chimneys
One of the important symbols of the city, Unique Mugla Houses are famous for being in harmony with their environment.
It is possible to divide Mugla houses into two as Turkish houses and Greek houses. The distinction between haremlik and selamlık (separate places for women and men) in traditional Turkish houses isn’t included in Muğla houses. The area opening to the garden in Turkish houses generally built on two floors is called “Hayat (life)“. Greek houses, on the other hand, are usually two-storey stone-built houses with simple designs. The ground floor is generally planned as a warehouse for goods and animals and the other as a living space. That the houses facing the street or the road are not separated by a wall shows the social status of the trader.
