Hamamizade İsmail Dede Efendi Evi, Ahırkapı Sk.17, Cankurtaran – Sultanahmet, İstanbul

Just a hundred yards from the epicentre of Istanbul tourism but rarely visited is the home of one of Ottoman music’s greatest composers, Hamizade İsmail Dede Efendi (1778–1846), much admired by the composer-sultan Selim III. Recitals of classical Turkish music are often performed here.
