Cinili Kosk

It should be spelled Çinili Kösk or "Villa with tiles". It is from 1472, the oldest extant secular building in Istanbul, and now houses the finest collection of Iznik ware in the country. For more, go to Cinili Kösk ceramics
museum
.

The tiles on the building themselves, which is opposite the archaeological museum, in the same museum garden, are fine also.
