Burgaz Ada (Gr. Antigone Island)

The Greeks named this attractive island after Alexander’s General Antigonus, who came there in 298 B.C. The Turkish name probably comes from the Greek pyrgos, a tower, remains of which survive from a fort on the peak. Burgaz is covered with pines, with a good beach on the south. The Greek monastery and church were built in 842 by the Empress Theodora. The tiny island of Kaşık [Gr. Pita) opposite was once used as a place of exile.
