The Church is located on the top of the hill. Views of sea and surrounding are fantastic and it transmit peace, spirituality and silence. It is very nice place for contemplation and reflection. When descending we took a horse pulled chart. It was also nice experience and not very expensive.
This is a legendary church where it is believed that miracles still happen - women who cannot get pregnant have to walk up the steep hill as a pilgrimage, with one condition. Must not utter one word for as long as they go up!
There was a long road uphill, and I suggest you to park your bike (if you're riding one)n near the restaurant at the beginning of this road and then go up. The view is REALLY AWESOME and really worth to go up this road. DO NOT MISS IT.

It's a small curch on top of a very steep hill, but I'd recommend it as it is a nice change of pace from the mundane things of Büyükada. Also, the restaurant is definitely worth the visit!
OK. To get there is a whole story. You either walk a loong walk (couple of hours) and then walk a bit more to reach it (1km uphill) or you take the horse cars (a bit expensive). Once on top, the view is magical. The church is untouched by islamic elements. It is a shame to see that this is... 更多
The church is closed but it is nonetheless worth going up the hill as the atmosphere is very special and the view up there is magnificent. You can ride up on a donkey but we walked up and it took about 20 minutes from the Luna park where we left our bikes. There is a nice restaurant up on the... 更多
