Cannon Gate - Topkapi or Romanus Gate

Cannon Gate - Topkapi or Romanus Gate
Although this gate has no relation to Topkapi Palace it did play an important role during the siege of 1453; being the weakest part of the wall, this is where the heaviest fighting occurred and where Hungarian engineer Urban placed the cannon that eventually demolished this section of the wall.  Some of the cannonballs used have been preserved and are on show here.  This is also where the last Byzantine emperor Constantine XI Dragases died in the vain attempt to retain the city.
