Portions of Bond 007 Skyfall filmed in Turkey

An article at MI6 (here) about the Istanbul premier of Skyfall mentions Turkish sites used in the film.

Turkey has felt a noticeable increase in tourist enquiries. “Skyfall” showcases the famous rooftops and the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, as well as the more rural and rugged landscapes of southern Turkey as the film’s second unit shot extensively in Adana.

Almost every group that visits Turkey makes a stop in Istanbul. On our recent Steps of Paul and John Tour we also made a brief visit to the Grand Bazaar. At one entry to the Bazaar the scaffolding was in place for the filming of some of the scenes in the new Bond 007 Skyfall movie.

One of the reasons many people have enjoyed the Bond movies is for the opportunity to see many beautiful and exotic places that served as settings.

Adana is located about 30 miles east of Tarsus, the native home of the Apostle Paul in the region of Cilicia.

But Paul said, “I am a Jew of Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no insignificant city; and I beg you, allow me to speak to the people.” (Acts 21:39 NAU)

  1. Maybe it is not so good to have the backside of this physically attractive female be the center of attention when first alighting upon this photo.
