This is the south-central area of walled Constantinople. It is a region of quiet streets and little building activity. The absence (as yet) of urban renewal means that community structures are still intact. Nowhere is this more obvious than at Kocamustafapaşa Camii, the descendant of the ancient Church of St Andrew in Krisei. Apart from this building, the Byzantine monuments are fragmented and widely separated. A short distance outside the walls is the Balıklı Monastery with a sacred spring that made this a place of pilgrimage since before Roman times.
