This neighborhood was once home to the Greeks and their houses are typically Greek style. The Greek Fener Rum Lisesi high school: the building of magnificent and unique red brick, Fener dominates from the top of the hill. Here we visit the St. George Orthodox Church (Patriarchate of Constantinople): The equivalent of San Pedro in Rome for Catholics. The historic and symbolic importance of this place is huge. It is one of the five main centers of Christianity. Visit Pammakaristos (Fethiye Camii): the main building continues to serve as a mosque, while the parekklesion became a museum. It hosted the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate until 1568. It contains the largest amount of Byzantine mosaics in Istanbul after St. Sophia, the Church of St. Saviour in Chora.
Imperial Suleymaniye Mosque: considered the most beautiful of all imperial mosques in Istanbul. It was built by Sinan. It was in the gardens of this complex where Roxelana Suleiman and his wife did build their mausoleums, and nearby Sinan built his own tomb.
Then you enjoy the Nargile with the locals in Istanbul in Corlulu Ali Pasa (Yeniçeriler Caddesi No.36 / 28): the charm of smoking hookah, custom in the Middle East. This is the most authentic place to do it, an oasis for locals and tourists. Relax between carpets and lamps colorful mosaics, while the aromas floating fruity snuff. It is a sensory delight in a mystical atmosphere.
