Edirnekapi Istanbul

Edirnekapi Istanbul
Between here and Topkapi is the valley that was once the route of the Lycus river and where the walls were least defensible as the higher ground outside of here was an advantage to attackers. The famous Orban Cannon was trained on this part of the wall during a siege in 1453 and the reason for its bad state today.
Edirnekapı itself is a small suburb and the actual gate derived its name from modern Edirne as it was part of the route to get there and was still being used in Byzantine times.

Places to Visit in Edirnekapi
