Burgazada - Sait Faik Evi

At #15 Çayır Aralığı Sokağı is the Spanudis Köşkü built by Dr. Spanudis. During the years 1934-54 this was the home of the famous writer Sait Faik Abasıyanık (1906-54) and is now a museum dedicated to his memory. It is well worth a visit, to see the mementos of the writer’s life and art, as well as to get a sense of life in a traditional island summer house. Sait Faik is also commemorated by a statue in Iskele Meydani. Many of his stories are about the ordinary people of Burgaz and their way of life, so it is very fitting that he is honored here.
