The island takes its name from the Greek word for “shining stone”. The first settlement on the island dates back to Hellenic antiquity. The settlement, which connected with sea colonies in the area, was continued by the Turks in the 15th century. The majority of the island’s population was Greek Orthodox, and Greeks and Turks coexisted on the island for centuries. After the population exchange agreed upon in the Lausanne Treaty, the Greeks were forced to move to Greece. In their place came resettled Turks from Crete and other Turks from the Black Sea region.
With an area of 110 km2, Marmara Island is the largest in the Marmara sea. The highest point of the island, at 710 metres, is the İlyas Hill, also known as the Nato Hill. Marmara Island belongs to the municipality of Marmara Islands and there are five neighbourhoods, today known as Çınarlı, Gündoğdu, Asmalı, Topağaç and Saraylar.
The Çınarlı neighbourhood is well-known for its century-old plane trees. It also houses a little museum with archeological finds from the area. In the Asmalı and Gündoğdu neighbourhoods with their old Greek houses, the residents, who are predominantly from the Black Sea, make a living from tourism, olive groves, fishing and transportation.
The Topağaç neighbourhood is most suited to agriculture and provides the island with many of its vegetables.
The Saraylar neighbourhood on the northern part of the island is where traces of the marble quarries of antiquity can be found. The town has been famous for its marble since it became a colony of Prokonnessos Miletus in 844 BC; marble is still extracted today.
Prokonnessos marble was used in the construction of the famous Artemis Temple in Ephesus (4th century BC) and the palace of the Satrap of Halicarnassus, Mausolos. It was furthermore an important source of marble for the Roman Empire. In Ottoman times, the marble for mosques and palaces was also quarried here. There is an open air museum in Saraylar.
Because marble absorbs humidity, humidity is very low on the island.
How to get there
There are daily IDO sea catamarans coming to Marmara Island from Istanbul (Yenikapı or Bostancı). The journey takes 3 hours. There are three Gestaş ferries a day from Erdek and private ferries from Tekirdağ.
