Stroll through Bozcaada

Stroll through Bozcaada

Your day starts with a visit of the majestic Bozcaada Castle. The existing castle dates back to Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror’s time when it was rebuilt on the ruins of the prior castle. Walk with your guide to the castle for a panoramic view of the Bozcaada and to learn the castle and village’s history.

Then a short walk through colorful streets brings you to the Bozcaada Museum. On display are fossils found locally, archaeological pieces, coins, articles from French soldiers when they used Bozcaada as a military base in the 1915 Canakkale War, ancient wine bottles produced on the island, the supplies Greek and Turkish people used in their houses.

Next is a photo stop at The Church of Mother Mary with a fascinating four-storied bell and watchtower. Followed by a visit to the Alaybey Mosque. The mosque, estimated to have been built in the 1700s, has a rectangular structure constructed with the red-cut stones and has a tiled hipped roof in the ottoman style. Enjoy a traditional homemade lemonade, accompanied by a tasty Turkish treat.

Bozcaada is a natural and historical preserved site with two main neighborhoods. See Greek & Turkish architecture and observe the cultural characteristics on your stroll of the narrow cobble stoned streets, and colorful Greek and Turkish houses of Bozcaada.
