Beautiful Byzantine church, although the walk it is in the nature it is a shame to see so many garbage on the way from Luna Park restaurant all the way up. I would say that they need to work on this..... more

Looking for heaven? It’s right there, along the path that lead you up the hill. Once on top, you know you’ll come back!

First of all, the ferry trip to the island was terrible - super cramped and the boat was not great. Once we got to the island, what we found was a run-down tourist trap that had no good places to eat.... more

Very beautiful place. The road is bit tiring, especially when it’s hot, but panoramic view of Marmara sea is stunning. Everyone should see it.
Road is a bit hard to climb. no shops and wc on the road. As a reward you will get a great view.
After a steep hike from Lunapark one can reach the Aya Yorgi (Saint George) church, part of the homonyme monastery. While the area has wonderful views of the surrounding sea, the church itself is a quite mundane building from 1905, with a belltower added in 1909. Inside the icon of St. George, supposedly prone to do miracles for believers.
⛪️ 🏝️The Church of St. George (Aya Yorgi in Turkish). It is located on Büyükada, the largest of the Princes’ Islands. It’s a peaceful place with its history and dramatic happening along the ages. The way to the church isn’t so easy walk. Let’s say it is pilgrim’s trail. So be sure you have comfortable shoes👟👟 Inside the church you can see exceptional icons made in Greek style. And the famous and old one is the icon of Saint George. Better to travel during spring or early autumn season but despite this I’ve been there early December and the weather was quite good. Summer period might not be the best to visit these special places.
it takes only 10,15 minutes to hikes & then this beautiful view came after the hiking seriously im in love with this place literally i go to 2 times with in 2 weeks totally worth it 💯 i recommend everyone to go this place 🥰
