Very beautiful. I love the decorative, round windows. At least, they look like windows.

OH, the Church of Saint Anthony (of Lisbon, not Padua). It's another beautiful building in Istiklal Caddesi. Loved to see it, even if it was cold...

Have you ever been inside? it's beautifiul - a haven of calm and tranquility along Istiklal. (gmg: I think it is the Franciscan church of S Antonio di Padua; least that's what all my guide books say :-))
