Camondo Stairs, Galata, Istanbul

<<Back | INDEX | Next >>

Istanbul‘s Camondo Stairs in Galata (Karaköy) were a public service project donated by the Camondos, a wealthy Istanbul Jewish family.

The stairs climb the hill from the Galata docks and Bankalar Caddesi(Avenue of the Banks) up to the fashionable 19th-century neighborhoods where the Camondos built an imposing edifice to house a school.

The school is now a rental apartment building where you can relive a bit of 19th-century Ottoman life.
