If you like it then don't be shy and give it a diamond or a heart! :)

[​Fun fact: The flag on top is not the Turkish flag but in fact the byzantine flag of Constantinople, adapted by the ottomans and later the modern Turks]

Galata Tower, one of the major landmarks of modern Istanbul, was built in the mid-14th century when the Genoese had a settlement at Galata. This tower, which dominated the topography of the region, functioned as something like the keep of the Genoese fortification system of Galata. The first phase of construction of the Walls of Galata perhaps first began the early 14th century and continued to be expanded and reinforced until shortly before the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453. The 8th century Fort of Galata was included in the Genoese fortifications by the late 14th century. The local municipality began to demolish much of the walls in 1864, though several sections of the walls, along with a several towers, and a gate, still survive.
