  • .. just to let you all know, the Church. I read somewhere that half for Christians pilgrimage path. In the evening it was clear I think to visit up to 16:00, except for a day (up to say Wednesday on my mind). Right next to simena.

  • Aya Yorgi Aya Yorgi Church geostrategic say it turns out that I was a tiny place as our Masjid! I dream as I portray a magnificent building in. They said it was a thousand years if I remember correctly. Photography is forbidden! Kind of hard to come out of the summer heat. But there's that restaurant you eat sausage for value:)

  • A beautifully restored 1000+ year old church atop the island. Stunning views and neat gardens and masonry. Unfortunately, photography is not permitted inside. There are lovely frescos and ornaments.
  • Its not easy to walk, to climb up there from the pier, yet worth to do it! There is an amazing panaromic landscape of Istanbul, Marmara Sea and The Prince Islands from the top. Every year on 23th of April and 24th of September, people walk up the monastry on top of the island, barefoot and without speaking any word, carrying threads.. Its a kind of pilgrimage..
  • From seaport you have to walk 30 minutes. By bike 15 minutes. Nothing else except this church in the hill.
  • It's not easy to go there But I think it worth it . Not just for church but very nice view at the top
  • It is not a short and easy to go to the top, but it worth it. The view from above plus the little paraklis are stunning! Must go!
