Reading list | Fatih

Fatih is both a quarter and, confusingly, now the municipality that administers the historic peninsula. The quarter extends from the Golden Horn and the Old City in Cornucopia's first two Istanbul issues, no 4 and no 32. In Cornucopia's online guide we will include the area between the Aqueduct of Valens and the Fortress of the Seven Towers and district of Samatya, on the Sea of Marmara. Fatih is a palimpsest waiting to be discovered – it is only rarely pretty in a conventional sense.
