Bornova Izmir

Bornova Izmir
Bornova is located in the greater metropolitan area of Izmir, is its 3rd largest district and 8km from the city centre.  Bornova is home to Ege University's main campus and hospital which for decades has been one of the largest and foremost medical centres in western Turkey. 

In the 19th century it was popular with Levantines who built many of the mansions in the area, and was used by foreign consuls and rich businessmen as their summer residence to escape
the stifling hot weather in the city centre as it sits on the slopes of Mount Yamanlar which gets a cooler breeze in summer.  In Ottoman times Bornova was a small forestry village where the residents guarded the mountain pass that leads into Izmir in exchange for tax relief.  The mansions and houses constructed in the 1800s, many of which have been restored, are used today as government offices and private residences and were named after their affluent former owners.

Bornova has the small Church of Santa Maria Catholic Church in its main square with an Anglican chapel and cemetery close by that dates from the 19th century and are an indication of Bornova’s international past.
