Nice, not spectacular

It is just another thing to tick off the list otherwise it can be skipped, not much will be missed. The environment around it is great to explore though.

İt is a historic clock tower located at the konak square in konak district of izmir. İt was designed by the Levantine French architect Raymond Charles Père and built in 1901 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Abdülhamid II's accession to the throne (reigned 1876–1909). The clock itself was a gift from German Emperor Wilhelm II (reigned 1888–1918).

You can find the Clock Tower in Konak Square, at the entrance of Kemeralti market. For me it was the most important attraction of Izmir, a big square with lots of people, coconut trees around and in the middle of it the thin clock tower. Worth spending some time in the square to relax depending on weather conditions as there... More

Saat Kulesi may be a must or must not visit but you will definitely visit. Saat Kulesi has been constructed from funds collected from Izmir Insanlar. So, it has a great significance. What makes this place more special is, kameralti market, Konak Square and the harbour. I specially like walking around Saat Kulesi and taking pictures of pigeons.
