Fenerbahce or Anatolian Lighthouse
The historical Fenerbahce Lighthouse is still used today and located on the northern shores of the Sea of Marmara in Istanbul’s district of Kadikoy . There are historical documents referring to the location of the cape that caused damage to ships and in 1562, Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent , issued a decree ordering a structure with light be built on the rocks at Kalamis Cape as it was known then.The lighthouse was built in 1857 and stands on a point at Cape Fenerbahce which is close to the eastern side of the Bosphorus entrance and is where Fenerbahce takes its name from as “fener” means lighthouse. Located in a public park south of Kadikoy it stands at 20m (66ft) high with a cylindrical form, having two galleries, is painted white and a one-storey stone keeper's house is attached to it; both the lighthouse and keepers house are under a protection order as this is a national heritage site that is open to the public but the actual tower is closed.
