Full Description

"A beautiful princess who is loved by her king father so much.
But a sorcerer said him, his daughter will die by a snake bite. This tower has been built to save his princess daughter from snakes. But on an unlucky day when her abilgail was carring a basket of apple, a snake hides insidiously in this basket. And when the sandal reached to tower it bites the beautiful princess. The destiny is inevitable.

There is another myth as well for this tower. It also known as ""The Leander's Tower"" in Greek mythology. A priestess of Aphrodite called Hero fell in love with Leander. And he swims every nights to see her in this tower.

Even if both myths have tragedy we invite you to enjoy with Galata Tower and find out these stories ends and watch the worst scenary of Istanbul.

As a poet says;"" You see the worst scenery of Istanbul when you look from Maiden's Tower"". When it is asked, why, he says; ""Because you do not see the Maiden's Tower""."
