Ayazma Church

According to the legend, a young girl dreams of the Virgin Mary while she is pointing out a spring. The Ayazma Church was built on that site in 1890, and the water was considered holy. It is also called the Church of Phaneromeni, which means "holy water." The church is located in the Kemal Pasha neighborhood of Balikesir Province. It is a neoclassical structure that was once used as an olive oil factory.
