"Nearing the Better Preserved Sections" Theodosian City Walls Tip by mrclay2000
Theodosian City Walls, Istanbul: 39 reviews and 70 photos
Nearing Yedikule, the interesting 'Castle of the Seven Towers,' the walls are more intact and for several hundred yards still perfectly preserved. This is happily the case because Mehmet's guns never tried the masonry here. The shorter, outer wall becomes visible along with sections of the moat, where today's Turks still tend their gardens. Again Melville: "Very loamy. Here the soldiers of Constantine fell. Sewn in corruption and raised in potatoes."
