We followed the walls of the Topkapi Palace down the hill to the Sea
of Mamara. The railway line cuts through the old walls and I do not remember
any tower of note at this junction. Once we reached the road which runs
between the Sea walls and the sea we turned right and walked back to the
main train station of Istanbul. A number of small work teams were working
on various section of the walls. I could not convince them to let me take
a look around so I just went further down the wall.
A wall tower of the Sea walls of Constantinople.
One of the main gates of this section.
An oddity, could be a blocked up gate (left of tree)
Second of the main gates along the section of the Sea walls.
Some detail of the interior of the gate.
As the wall extends towards the Bosphorus the walls and towers get
lower and finally disappear.
However, I did note some original walls near the Egyptian Bizarre.
