History[edit]

In Gündoğdu, a village amongst the Kurşunlu hills, there is an ancient monastery called Hagios Aberkios. This monastery is thought to have been built by the Greeks before the Ottoman period. However, the general public is not aware of its existence, and it stands there abandoned. According to the new project of the Kurşunlu municipality, it has been declared that the Hagios Aberkios will soon be turned into a museum.
