One of many iconic places in Izmir. You can capture some great picture with the birds here as feeding them.

Located in the Konak Square, the tower was built in 1901 by a Levantine French architect and the clock itself was a gift of the German Emperor Wilhelmina II. The clock tower appeared on the 500 Turkish Lira note in the late 1980's. It dominates the square.

Lovely old clock tower - lots of people about... close to cute mosque and the bazaar. Also close to Konak square and the water. Not a lot of time needed here.

The clock tower is located close to the Konak Mosque and is a great place to relax and spend some time chilling and looking at other people. The metro station is walking distance from the clock tower

This is a very small yet pretty tower. Looks even more beautiful when it is full lit after sunset. The square is bustling with people, nice place to spend an evening. Across the road is sea so ideal location for spending an evening. Easily accessible by the metro.

This is a clock tower. Apart from some republican historical importance nothing architecturally impressive or significant.

This is an iconic landmark in Izmir and well worth visiting. There is a very lovely and small blue tiled mosque right next to it.

nice, clean and tidy square with clock tower in the middle, if you are in Izmir worth a visit, but nothing special

This clock tower is the landmark of Izmir. If you are a foreigner, you can grab a "simit" (round shaped bread with sesame on it), sit on a bench and observe the daily routine of Turkish people. If you like, you can feed the pigeons. If you are a photographer, you can shoot nice pictures around here.
