Get aroundEdit


A street in the old town of Burhaniye; Hacı Ahmet Mosque is at the far end of the street
  • Hacı Ahmet Mosque (Hacı Ahmet Camii). Built in 1798, this building superficially resembles a Greek church and as such it might be mistaken for a church-turned-mosque, which are quite usual in western Turkey. However, this was built as a mosque, and the catch is that it was the local Greek stonemasons who built the place. It's surrounded by pleasant narrow cobbled alleys which are also worth a look, lined by somewhat dilapidated historical houses.


While the town centre of Burhaniye is slightly inland, good sandy beaches can be found at nearby Ören and Pelitköy.
