Antandros, situated on a strategic junction overlooking the road between Mysia and Troad is believed by some historians to be built long before the Trojan War. The academic excavation works started with surface survey on 2000 and has been continuing under a ministerial decree since 2007.

Abdullah Efendi Konağı Görseli

The Historical Abdullah Efendi Mansion

The Abdullah Efendi Mansion’s story goes back a good 160 years. The very first owner of the mansion was the priest of the then Papazlık Church. The priest immigrated to Lesbos Island at a time between the end of WWI and the Turkish War of Independence. The priest exchanged his properties and goods with Abdullah Asaf Efendi a resident of Lesbos Island who was about to immigrate to Turkey around the same time. Thus the second owner of the mansion became Abdullah Efendi and the mansion was from then on regarded as Abdulah Efendi Mansion.
