We were lucky to have a guide who arranged for us to go into several synagogues which we found interesting. The synagogues are clustered together next to a thriving food market. It's nice to see that the synagogues do not need 24/7 armed security as in other countries. Our guide was from the community and explained the unfortunate decline (only... More

This is the very famous street in Izmir. There are many old synagogues in this stree. Some of them are still in use. Some very historic. Nowadays they have been reparing them and very important to visit specially for Jewish people

you can't miss it if you are walking in Bazaar. Nothing special, but if you like watching people, market, just browse around and enjoy the moment

You can taste the spirit of Mediterranean Life at this street. It is unbelievable that there are seven synagogues in these small street and you can find fresh local tastes. It was a favorite place for our Grandma's for daily grocery shopping:) and for us too :)

It is quite right that you have to arrange access to see the six synagogues in this street. We did this through a professional guide, Levent Solmaz, who can be reached via his website, and it was a thoroughly absorbing, really interesting visit. The great thing was that the synagogues range from 400 or so years old to about 100... More

It is sad to hear that so few of the once strong Jewish population remain today. The synagogues themselves are there, poorly presented and apparently not open.

As most parts of Kemeralti, higher levels of buildings cannot be seen because of the tarpaulins across the blocks. Thus it was almost impossible to see the surroundings around this market. Havra street was a regular public market. There were mostly fish and vegetable shops. We bought some cheese special of the region from Meshur peynirci, which was a right... More
