In the midst of many, many mosques throughout the city, St. Anthony's is a wonderful and peaceful visit that provides a comforting touch of home for those visiting for the first time.

This is a beautiful Catholic Church in the heart of the city, amazing stained glass windows & statues. There are lots of Christian churches in this city. The Turks are very welcoming to all religious.

In the heart of Istiklal Caddesi, the church does remind us of the multi cultural facets of the city… it always has people there and it seems to have more animation from the Syrian Catholics now!

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal
Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night
and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights,
shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of
people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive
Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of
the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned
restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
