Thousands of Orthodox churches in Turkey have been confiscated, fallen into disrepair, or been destroyed. Now, one such church is up for sale. According to Protothema,

A historic 18th century Orthodox Church in Kayseri — ancient Caesarea — was put up for sale by a local man, Ömer Sicimoğlu, who bought the abandoned church building in 2013. He told the Anadolu Agency that the church is “an important cultural asset” that can be restored. Mr. Sicimoğlu said that, ideally, he would like the church to be bought by someone who would renovate it.

Sicimoğlu, who works in real estate, posted an ad for the property on an online shopping site with a price tag of 450,000 euros.
