Catholics in Turkey

Catholics in Turkey make up a small minority of the population, estimated to be around 0.2%. The majority of Catholics in Turkey are expatriates or foreign residents, as there are very few native Turkish Catholics. The Catholic community in Turkey faces challenges due to the country’s predominantly Muslim population and strict laws on religious minorities. Some of the most famous landmarks in Turkey include the Hagia Sophia, a former church and mosque that is now a museum; the Blue Mosque, known for its stunning blue-tiled interior; and the ancient city of Ephesus, which features well-preserved ruins of a once-great Greco-Roman city. Other notable landmarks include the fairy-tale-like Cappadocia region, the ancient city of Troy, and the Pamukkale hot springs. However, they are still able to practice their faith and contribute to the diversity of Turkey’s religious landscape.
