The thousands of tourists who have already travelled to this country, and in particular the region in which it is located, are probably familiar with this ancient village. But if you haven’t visited this country or travelled the route on which the village stands, you may not even be aware of its existence.
Or perhaps you’ve seen pictures on social media but either can’t remember where it’s located or don’t know about its significance. As usual, I will tease you with a couple of clues.
