Aya Yorgi Kilisesi (St. George Church)

ADD TO MY TRIP

This Orthodox church has a very important place in some minority living in Istanbul. Every 23rd of April, on the day of St. George, a great celebration takes place in the Büyükada (Great Island) letting believers pray and participate according to their intentions. The church is on the top of the hill and the idea is to walk the whole uphills by naked feet and complete a pilgrimage. The top of the hill is worth of seeing as well as the old church really!
