Mesrutiyet Road Istanbul

Mesrutiyet Road Istanbul
This street runs parallel with Istiklal Road and links the Tunel neighbourhood on the south with the British consulate on the north.  It was once spread out with local graveyards and earned the name “Les Petits Champs” and the impressive 19th century mansions here housed wealthy Europeans.  

Buildings worth visiting on Mesrutiyet Road

Case d’Italia or Italian Cultural Centre

Most of the buildings acquired new lives in the 20th century such as the Case d’Italia became the Italya Evi and is now the Italian Cultural Centre.

Buyuk Londra Hotel

The home of Monsieur Glavany became the Belle Vue and today is the Buyuk Londra Hotel and the street named Kallavi Street was named after him.  

Palazzo Corpi

Walking from Sishane to the Pera Palace Hotel on the left side is a very ornate 19th century mansion that was originally named Palazzo Corpi and built for the Corpi Genoese banking family.  The building was designed by Giacome Leoni, an Italian architect for Ignazzio Corpi.  It has a neoclassical exterior and the hallway inside has excellent frescoes over a grand stairway, and in the Great Hall there are mythological paintings that include those of Diana, Neptune and the Three Beauties.  During most of the 20th century it was the American Consulate but after the horror of the 9/11 terrorist act the consulate was moved to Istinye and into a fortress like building.  The Palazzo building has been earmarked to become a boutique hotel.
