Küçük Mustafa Paşa Hamam

Müstantik Caddesi 23-25, Küçükmustafapaşa, Fatih

Located between Sultanahmet and the Byzantine walls, it is a short walk from the south coast of the Golden Horn.

One of the oldest hamams in Istanbul, it was built in 1477 during the reign of Fatih Sultan Mehmet and 24 years after the conquest of Byzantium by the Ottomans. Covering an area of 1,900 square metres, it ceased being used as a bath house in the 1990s. It has since been restored, and is now being used as a venue for exhibitions and other events.
