We are loving that Spring has arrived, and are delighted that Maggie has offered to run one of our always-popular, member-led, walks. AND she is bringing this tradition to the European side for a change!
Beyoglu today has many different cultures, ethnicities and religions, but also retains a very strong sense of its history at the heart of the multi-cultural capital of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The tour will cover the area from Tunel to the Galatasaray High School. Maggie will give us insight into the many beautiful hans here, which we often just pass by when strolling through the area, and take us into some of the interesting churches.
Finishing up in French Street, there will be a chance to enjoy coffee or lunch together to reflect on our exploration.
