Güzel Sanatlar Galerisi


Urfa's backstreets have many distinctive limestone houses with protruding bays supported on stone corbels. This is one of the best restored examples of this architectural style. It's near the post office and sometimes functions as an art gallery, though it wasn't open during our last visit.
