The largest church of İstanbul
Today it is the largest church with the busiest congregation and is run by Italian priests. Saint Antoine Church was constructed in the form of a Latin cross. The walls of the church were covered with mosaic tiles up until a certain level. The entrance to the church is located on the main street between two apartments which were built to raise money for Saint Antoine Church.
