Description :

Over almost 360 years old, the Spice Bazaar (also known as Egyptian Bazaar) is the second largest covered market in Istanbul after the Grand Bazaar. Commissioned by Sultan Hatice Turhan, as part of the “New Mosque” (Yeni Camii) complex, the bazaar was built in 1664, by the imperial architect Mustafa Aga.

The bazaar has six different doors through which you can access it. The main gate being “EMINÖNÜ KAPISI” which can be accessed from Eminonou Square next to the “New Mosque”.

Once inside the bazaar, you will immediately be transported to a Middle Eastern atmosphere, where the smells and colors will enchant you.

You will find there, not only spices as its name suggests, but also dried fruits, herbal remedies, rose water, artisan savants, and all kinds of other food products without forgetting the famous Lokoums.

If you prefer to avoid the rush, it is better to visit the Bazaar before noon and the massive arrival of tourists.
