Our evening is spent within The Egyptian Bazaar, also known as The Bazaar of Spices.

The final part of The Ottoman Tour is a visit to The Rüstempasa Mosque, one of the many outstanding works of the remarkable Ottoman architect Sinan. This building demonstrates his highly effective and individualistic usage of the blue ceramics of Iznik (Nicea). You can also view precious panels which require great concentration in order to construct their hidden patterns.
