Project Passed the Monuments Board
About the project:
Blue Kortejo is a building next to the Smyrna Agora, a few steps from Anafartalar Street. Kortejoards are common structures with common toilets, bathrooms and kitchens. Although there are dozens of examples in history, unfortunately only a few have survived to the present day. The most beautiful examples of the Kortejo, which has been used as accommodation for hundreds of years, are located in Basmane.
When the project is completed, it will serve as a accommodation structure for young people and will be used as a youth hostel. The hostel will provide affordable accommodation, and will be a pioneer in transforming these and other historic small hotels into the Youth Hostel. Besides, positive transformation will be accelerated with more young people drawn to the Historic Area.
