Galata Tower

Galata tower

The Galata Tower  is a medieval stone tower in the Galata/Karaköy quarter of Istanbul, Turkey. One of the city’s most striking landmarks, it is a high, cone-capped cylinder that dominates the skyline and offers a panoramic vista of Old Istanbul  and its environs. With the clouds this tower looks like a fairy tale tower. But in reality at the bottom of the tower there are some ugly buildings. You can read more and view original tower photos from here.
