Gaziantep Travel Notes - ( 2023 -2024 )

Shall we send you our mouth-watering notes in Gaziantep, which are special for you, full of pill information for you to record?
So let's start...

☕️ First, for a walk-coffee in the historical center; we start from Köprübaşı Street on the Antep Culture Road. We find ourselves in small elegant streets, churches, mosques, bazaars and the smell of mind-blowing aromas. Time seems to have stopped in this part of the world.

✏️ We understand how food, history, culture, people and music feed each other much better when we visit the Archaeology Museum. We admire Boyacı Mosque, one of the oldest mosques in Antep, Ahmet Çelebi Mosque, whose woodwork we love, Kendirli Church built by Catholics in the 1860s, Saklı Konak Ali Atalar Collection, Zeugma Mosaic Museum and Emine Göğüş Gaziantep Kitchen Museum.

After wandering around all four corners, we drink dibek and menengiç coffee at Tahmis Kahvesi (17th century) and eat the mixed nuts that come with it.

🗝 Another subject of interest for us folklorists: the bazaars of Antep, a cocoon of handicrafts. In the bazaars such as Almacı Bazaar, Kürkçü Han, Bakırçılar Bazaar, Saraciyeciler Bazaar, we come across the most unique examples of the crafts of Yemeni, mother-of-pearl, coppersmith, kutnuc, aba weaving, silver embroidery, Antep rugs, küpçülük, saddlery.
