The village is a photographer’s paradise, with its old houses, cobblestone streets, the ruins of a stone school building, a church and a mosque supporting each other, and with the streets shadowed by centuries-old trees.
As you climb up the hill, you are met by “Kemerli Kilise” (Vaulted Church). It was destroyed by an earthquake in 1855 and, though it was restored in 1883, much of its originality has been lost. Inhabitants told us about the marvelous 14th- and 17th-century frescoes in the church; however, since you need permission to visit it, we did not have a chance to see those inner beauties.
The stone school building, which is called “Taş Mektep” and which has been quite destroyed, was built as a monastery in early 1900s. In addition, former Cyprus president Archbishop Makarios was among the graduates. Before the War of Independence, it was an orphanage, and since then it has been used for educational courses. The building now belongs to Bursa Uludağ University and is under restoration.
The strong northeast wind cools the summer days, however I imagine it is freezing in the winter. The coast between Tirilye and Zeytinbağı is a natural beach, but the pollution sometimes effects the view along the coastline.
By the sea there are nice fish restaurants. You can have your meal in one of them. People are much visit the restaurants on the beach side by side at the weekend. They are clean and have pleasant service. Fishes available due to seasons.
