A beautiful piece of history, great place for pictures and a good point to either start or end your walk through the old souk (market). Nearby there is also a beautiful little mosque to appreciate.

I still could not understand why the Clock Tower is the mark of Izmir. According to my point of view, this is not enough. During the night it is quite amazing. However, during the day it is hardly observable. Nevertheless, it is located at the most central square of Izmir. Do not forget to visit it at night as well.

The place is very beautiful, with a sea view. There is not much to do, but look. So wile you r walking on the boardwalk, you can make a stop here to take a good picture.

More than the Saat itself, that unfortunately is not functioning and a some of the glasses on top broken, the area is uniquely located between the sea and hill.It is walking distance to the recently structured mall/restaurants seaside as well as the Asansor.

Clock tower is the symbol of izmir. At the same time, it is the major landmark and center of izmir. There is a cute mosque nearby. From there, you can continue to kemeralti or take a boat to Karşıyaka.

It is not a so big deal but you must see it if you came Izmir. But it is in the central of the city in Konak Square, so if you go there for any reason, you will get to see this tower.

It was a beautiful example to Turkish architecture. We took a nice walk to it but I didn't find it spectacular.
