Owner description: According to Turkish legend, a princess was locked in this tower to protect her from being bitten by a snake. Over the years the tower has been used as a customs station, lighthouse and a residence for retired naval officers.

I likes the story/stories linked to this tower. I was looking for the tower, but could not find it. Later I found out I already passed it. So it is not a very impressing big tower. Easily overlookes :-)

A stone's throw from the shore, a tower with lots of legends. Not very much to see or do (don't drink 'coffee' in the top floor cafe: it is disgusting Nescafé and costs a fortune!) but a cute place to visit.

A wonderful piece of architecture in the middle of the bosphorus. Great for dinner and transportation is easy too (If it isn't winter and the sea isn't going crazy, that is.)

The place looks really beautiful during sundown. There are coffee spots on the shore of the Asian side, where you could take wonderful pictures of it. Also, girls find it really romantic. :)

I went there with my girlfriend it's very romantic place especially while the sunset. Don't go there with children. You really want to relax there if you know what I'm talking about. ;)
