Camondo Steps

November 21, 2014

The Gaudí-esque neo-baroque and art-nouveau staircase known as Camondo Steps contributes greatly to the chain of contrasts in Istanbul. Built by a prominent 19th-century Jewish Galata banker – Avram Camondo who was an exceptional philanthropist. Worth the walk around the Galata street labyrinth. Istanbul – always full of surpises! I cannot find information who the architect was.
