Description

This is a tour to areas where the traditional Istanbul Fish Festival is organized. The walk covers many other historic places.

Up to recent times, Samatya was mostly inhabited by Armenians, who own the church of Surp Kevork (St. George), also called Sulu Monastery - which dates back from before the Ottoman conquest.

The Greek orthodox have churches such as Hristos Analipsis and Haghios Menas. There are Latin churches as well. Turks have impressive mosques such as Ramazan Efendi Camii, which is Sinan's work of art, and Kocamustafapasa Camii, which is the former Byzantine Church of St Andrew.
