Taşbaşı Cultural Centre

Historic Building in Ordu

Standing in a hilltop garden littered with (sadly defaced) statuary and overlooking the sea, this former Greek church (1853) is now a cultural centre. It's largely empty when nothing cultural has been scheduled, but is worth visiting for its austere beauty and its situation – the surrounding old Greek quarter, 500m west of central Ordu, is an attractive neighbourhood of tumbledown houses and a couple of lovely boutique hotels.
