Saint Antoine Church Istanbul
Building of the Church began on August 23, 1906 by architect Giulio Mongeri, who was born in Istanbul and on completion in 1912 opened for religious services that were run by Italian priests.
The Church was built in a Neo-Gothic style with a Latin cross shape measuring 20m x 50m and the width of the outer façade overlooking the street is 38m. The walls of the Church were covered with mosaic tiles up to a certain level and the outer façade of the building is made of bricks.
The entrance to the Church is located on the street between two apartment blocks that were built to raise money for the Church and the entrance door leads you into a courtyard. The Saint Antoine Church symbolises a wonderful example of religious tolerance and acceptance.
