Built in 1559, Caferağa Medresesi is located near the Hagia Sophia. The structure serves as a haven for those seeking tranquility with the restaurant located in the courtyard with hot drinks and traditional Turkish dishes. Traditional handicrafts such as paper marbling, calligraphy, jewellery and ceramics are displayed by the artisans. The masters also teach classes here, so the experience becomes an everlasting one.
In the calm, peaceful yard and rooms of our medresseh, we welcome our guests with unique flavors of Turkish cuisine.
