"Maidens Tower" Istanbul Ili Things to Do Tip by Jmill42

Istanbul Ili Things to Do: 154 reviews and 562 photos

  Maiden's Tower
by Jmill42

Of any of the sights that my friend escorted me around to, this was one that he wanted to bring me to the most, but we ended up never going. Apparently he is not alone, this is one of the city's favorite landmarks, found on t-shirts and logos everywhere. It gained fame when it became the hideout for Sophie Marceau in Bond's "The World Is Not Enough". There is an expensive cafe located there and is also known as Leander's Tower in English.
