If you are at Istiklal Street or somewhere near, it's worth to spend few minutes to look inside. The church practically isn't visible from the Istiklal Street, you need to turn into a niche and go down a few steps.

Don’t miss this beautiful church if you are at Istiklal Street. It isn’t as popular as St Antoine church but it is well worth a visit if you are in the area. It is towards the Tunnel section of Istiklal.
Not for the handicapped though...More
What a joy finding Santa Maria draperies. For more than 4 years and for several occasions, tried hard to find it without any chance. Finally after an hour walking,, decided to visit st. Anthony de padova,and asked him to find for me the lost address,...More

A small church constructed mid 1700. Nice frescoes and paintings. Franciscan Catholic Order keeps the church and give Mass on Saturday evening in Italian, 2 on Sunday morning and one in the evening.A nice quiet place to pray.

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
