About Bozcaada

     Bozcaada (Tenedos) , one of the two Turkish islands in the Aegean Sea is the distrit of Canakkale , Situated almost exactly opposite the famous city of Troy , Bozcaada is 14 miles from the mount of Dardanelles (Hellespont) and 3 miles from the West Anatolian coast.

The history of grape growing and wine making is as old as Bozcaada itself. Tenedos coins from the ancident times are embossed with figures of grape bunches. 3-3.5 million litres of delicious quality wine is produced annually on the island which also has a significant fishing and tourism potential. The island boats the clearest waters in all the Aegean which teems with all kind of fish.

     Each corner of the 17-miles long coast is an ideal beach and a recreation and picnic spot. Both the shore and the islad are as green as ever . traditional architecture in the city has also been well preserved. With its wellkept and massive structure the fortress of Bozcaada in unique among all Aegean islans in thet it reminds one of all periods of history that it has gone through.
