A former Greek settlement under the name of Trilye or Triglia, the town was largely depopulated during the population exchange that followed the Turkish War of Independence in 1923 and many of the older houses are in a sad state of disrepair. Nevertheless, enough of the old houses have been restored to make Zeytinbagi probably the most attractive town in the Sea of Marmara and it is a popular destination for local tourists. The area is famous for its olives and olive oil (Zeytinbagi = olive field)
