Camondo Steps (Kamondo Merdivenleri) – Istanbul
These unusual ornamental steps are the legacy of one of Galata’s most prominent Jewish families, the Camondos, who moved to Istanbul from Venice at the beginning of the 19th century. Once here, they launched a family banking business and grew to be the primary bankers of the Ottoman Empire.
