Built in 1451, Tophane-i Amire was a cannon foundry that gave this neighbourhood its name. The structure is striking because of its multiple domes and small turrets. Although the building is still owned by the military, it is sometimes used as a cultural and arts centre. It is located across from the Kılıç Ali Paşa Mosque and has great views over it.
