  • I have been there several time, the guard at the entrance sometimes ask for an offer and few liras are enough. The place worth it.
  • Be aware. They invited me to see inside and then asked me to donate. I gave $10 Lira but they didn't like it at all. They threw me out in less than ten minutes.
  • Greek Church in the heart of Pera.
  • Nice to visit a church in Turkey
  • Best view, Best place.
