Kemeraltı Bazaar

Kemeraltı is one of the world's oldest bazaars. The 2,400-year-old Kemeraltı Bazaar of İzmir, which embraces many historical places, has been the city's shopping mall since the Hellenistic period. It is an important place that directs the social, cultural and commercial life of Izmir and accelerates the development of the city. Just to spite the time, it offers its guests fun shopping pleasure in the region extending to the Agora following the Clock Tower with its herbalists, coppersmiths and shoemakers. There are approximately 2 thousand registered buildings in the bazaar. It is also a region where all three religions have lived in harmony with its churches, mosques and synagogues. The Historical City Center of Izmir, which includes Kemeraltı Bazaar and its surroundings, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Temporary List in April 2020.
