The Galata Toweris a medieval stone tower in the Galata/Karaköy quarter of İstanbul, just to the north of the Golden Horn's junction with the Bosphorus. It offers a panoramic vista of İstanbul’s historic peninsula and its environs.
The Romanesque style tower was built as Christea Turris (Tower of Christ) in 1348 during an expansion of the Genoese colony in Constantinople. Galata Tower was the tallest building in Istanbul at 219½ feet (66.9 m) when it was built in 1348.
According to the Seyahatname of Ottoman historian and traveller Evliya Çelebi, in circa 1630-1632, Hezarfen Ahmet Çelebi flew as an early intercontinental aviator using artificial wings for gliding from this tower over the Bosphorus to the slopes of Üsküdar on the Anatolian side, nearly six kilometres away.
Starting from 1717 the Ottomans began to use the tower for spotting fires in the city.
Today, there is a restaurant and café on its upper floors which command a magnificent view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. There are two operating elevators that carry visitors from the lower level to the upper levels.
