Description :

Galata Tower (Galata Kulesi) is one of the oldest towers in the world. It was first built of wood in the year 528, by the Byzantine emperor Anastasius Oilosuz, to serve as a lighthouse, then it was rebuilt by the Genoese in 1348, to protect the port of the Galata coast and was, at the time, the tallest building in Constantinople. The tower was opened to the public in 1960,

Located in the heart of Beyoglu, north of the Golden Horn, its summit, at 69.90 meters, offers without doubt one of the best panoramic views of Istanbul you can have. This is also the reason why it was used for a long time by firefighters as an observation post and monitoring fires throughout the city.

The GALATA TOWER also includes a museum where several historical pieces are displayed, as well as a souvenir shop.

A visit to this tower is highly recommended, especially that it is located in a tourist district where you will surely not fail to board the famous historic tram that you can also use to get there.
