Cağaloğlu is a quarter located in the Fatih district of Istanbul, Turkey. Much of the publishing industry in Istanbul is located in Cağaloğlu. It is also famous for its ancient hamam, or Turkish bath, known as the Cağaloğlu Hamam.NameThe quarter gets its name from Cigalazade Yusuf Sinan Pasha (Cağaloğlu Yusuf Sinan Paşa; c. 1545–1605), an Ottoman admiral and statesman of Genoese descent, as well as a member of the influential Cicala family of Genoa. The original name Cigalaoğlu (meaning "of the Cigala (Cicala) family", or literally "Cigala-son" as a Turkified surname) eventually turned into Cağaloğlu through the course of centuries.Add Cagaloglu and other attractions to your Istanbul trip itinerary using our Istanbul trip itinerary builder app.

Pleasant experience, go early to get the best attention. I came here early, 10 am, and there were only a few in the women's section. Service was efficient, staff helpful. Marble slabs were beautiful but a bit hard to lie on during bubble wash. Delicious treats and tea at the end.
I had the number 4 treatment and it was amazing. The lady who provided my service her name was Kadriye and she was fantastic at her job and very professional. Highly recommend the experience to anyone who is in Istanbul.
