Pierre Loti Hill is a hill in Eyüp district of Istanbul where the Golden Horn view can be watched the best. The hill, named after Julien Viaud, a French writer and orientalist, is a hill visited by local and foreign tourists. The French writer, who settled in Istanbul in 1876, came to a coffee house here and wrote his novel, and later changed his name to Pierre Loti, is still referred to by this touristic hill today. In 1920, the city of Istanbul gained the title of honorary fellow countryman. The name of the writer, who established a society in his name, is first given to a street and then to a coffee house he frequently goes to. The coffee house is located on the present-day Pierre Loti Hill. For this reason, the name of the hill remains Pierre Loti.
