Egyptian Consulate Building

Architecture in The Bosphorus Strait

Thought by some critics to be the work of Italian architect Raimondo D’Aronco, this gorgeous art nouveau mini-palace was built for Emine Hanım, mother of the last khedive (viceroy) of Egypt, Abbas Hilmi II, and dates from 1902. It’s the white building with a mansard roof and an ornate wrought-iron fence.
