Galata Tower (Galata Kulesi)

The Galata Tower is found on a hilltop overlooking the Golden Horn, the Bosphorus, and the Sea of Marmara. It was built by the Genoese in 1.348 as the chief tower in the city walls of Galata. After suffering heavy damage in a great earthquake in 1509, the tower was repaired by Architect Hayreddin. The tower is therefore Turkish-made from 13 meters up.
