Spice Bazaar (46 of 62)

The Spice Bazaar, (Turkish: 'Misir Çarsisi', or Egyptian Bazaar) in Istanbul, Turkey is one of the oldest bazaars in the city. Located in Eminönü, it is the second largest covered shopping complex after the Grand Bazaar. The bazaar was (and still is) a center for the spice trade, and many spices used to be imported from Egypt in the past. On the other hand, in the Byzantine period, the site of the Spice Bazaar was the centre of corn trade.
