Amcazade Huseyin Pasha Yalisi
Built in 1699, this is the oldest mansion on the Bosphorus. It has a marble fountain from which a jet of water spouts upwards, and its ceilings are decorated with flowers and geometrical designs. Unfortunately, it is in ruins, because of neglect. The original owner H├╝seyin Pasa was a member of Mevlevi sect. Five Grand Viziers stemmed from the K├Âpr├╝l├╝ family of the Ottoman Empire. Huseyin Pasa was the fourth Grand Vizier. Pierre Loti appealed to the authorities for the Amcazade mansion to be saved.
