Madenşehri (literally “city of mines”) is a village in the central district (Karaman) of Karaman Province, Turkey. It is situated on the northern slopes of Karadağ, an extinct volcano, and is 42 kilometres (26 mi) north of the town of Karaman. The population of the village was 289[1] as of 2010.


Like some other Karadağ locations, Madenşehri has many early-Photian Council of Constantinople (879).[2][3] No longer a residential bishopric, Barata is today listed by the Catholic Church as a titular see.[4]
