Saint Theresa Church and Talaat Yen Plaza

The centre of town

What we say: 3 stars

This Catholic church was built in the 1920s during the French occupation and continues to function today.

It's not exactly awe-inspiring with its relatively modest steeple, white walls and simple interior, but it does have some stained glass windows and a garden courtyard with a statue of the Virgin Mary between the church and Talaat Yen plaza.

If you're up for them, services are still held from 05:30 to 06:30 Sunday through Friday. Due west of the church is the plaza, which is ringed by heritage buildings and hosts a range of street food carts in the evenings.

Locals gather here at night and the plaza has a charming and innocent vibe after the sun sets, although it's virtually deserted by day.
