The Galata Tower (or Galata Kulesi), also known as the Christea Turris or Tower of Christ was built in 1348 by the Genoese colony in Constantinople. According to legend, it was the starting site of the first intercontinental flight when Hezarfen Ahmet Çelebi used a glider to cross the Bosphorus. It was damaged several times during its history until the Ottomans decided not to keep rebuilding the roof, but during the last renovation in the 1960s, the roof was added once more - this time made of concrete, not wood. Visitors can take the elevator up to the viewing platform to enjoy the views of Istanbul or enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant at the top.
