Facts

  • Located in Pera, the old Genoese-Venetian Quarter of Istanbul, the Italian Gothic style S. Antonio di Padova is without doubt Istanbul's most famous and popular Roman Catholic church. It is located on Istiklal Caddesi (Grand Rue de Pera) and was built by the local Levantino Italians of Istanbul.
  • 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 was known in Turkey with the nickname "The Turkish Pope" because of his fluent Turkish and his love for Istanbul.
