  • Neighborhood very picturesque and colorful, to visit on Tuesday if you want and more benefit from the market. Small shops and workshops, already a few cafes.

  • Here you can breathe the air of Istanbul authentic ... away from tourists. Streets full of bright colors and charateristic (old craftsmen workshops, small bar with small chairs in colored wood), young kids playing football and are invoked from mothers to finestre...ma some beautiful sights such as the Church of Saint Mary of the Mongols and the Patriarchate of Constantinople.
