Trilye (also known as Zeytinbagi) is a lovely town situated 12 km west of Mudanya along the Marmara Sea shoreline.The area was inhabited since 5th Century BC. The most important historical structure in Trilye is that of the Byzantine Aya Todori Church, known today as the Fatih Mosque. Only 2500 people currently live in the town. In the town are the ruins of old Byzantine churches and old Greek houses built at the end of the 19th Century. This town is under the protection by the Ministry of Culture so no one can destroy the old houses or rebuild them in a different style than the original one. The place is famous for its olives and had historically been inhabited by Greek artisans engaged in the silk trade. Zeytingbagi means olive yard. You can take a walk around the old narrow streets of Trilye, enjoy the architecture and the history, drink tea on the hill with the magnificent seaview and enjoy a delicious meal in one of the restaurants. You can buy olive and its products as souvenir.
