Photographer's Note

i saw this church when i was in the chaotic crowd of Taksim and it seemed like an ''escape'' to run away from the crowd..

here is the story of St.Antuan church :

''The original S. Antonio di Padova Cathedral was built in 1725 by the local Italian community of Istanbul, but was later demolished and replaced with the current building which was constructed on the same location

The cathedral is run by Italian priests. Saturday mass is in Italian and begins at 19:00, Sunday mass is in English and begins at 10:00, and Tuesday mass is in Turkish and begins at 11:00.

Pope Giovanni XXIII (John XXIII, 1958-1963) preached in this church for 10 years, when he used to be Vatican's Ambassador to Turkey before being elected as Pope. He is known in Turkey with the nickname "The Turkish Pope" because of his fluent Turkish and his often expressed love for Turkey and the city of Istanbul.''
