  • He knocks over a performance yergiye to the moon to Büyükada. When you reach the top, but top-down look at the landscape for hours or admire. Literally a pure hiking. Bottom-up I have come across a mysterious orphanage on the way out at 3.5 km and are you surprised. We can say that Europe is not a place to forget the largest orphanage in this area may be subject to have an atmosphere of the film.

  • 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!
