Yedikule Fortress

Istanbul, Turkey


Ksenia Mardina

Yedikule Fortress by the city wall is the main defense of old Constantinople. Its highlight is the Torture Museum in one of its seven towers – in the 15th century it housed Mehmed the Conqueror treasures but later he turned it into prison for noblemen- wazirs, foreign spies and masters. You'll be numb seeing the torture gear compared to which inquisition is a child's game. Among other curiosities are canon balls in the yard, graffiti and dark spots resembling Byzantine blood.
