Yoros Castle Istanbul

Yoros Castle Istanbul
It is not known exactly when the Yoros Castle was erected on the Asian side of the Bosphorus but is believed to date from the times the Palaelogos family ruled Constantinople. On a  wall inside above the entrance is a cross surrounded by four “b”s (for “basileus”) which stood for “King of kings who kings it over kings”. The Genoese seized the castle in 1352 when they began to collect custom duties for themselves, and in 1452 Mehmed the Conqueror took it over although he never used it for anything and allowed it to fall into total disrepair.



It is usually referred to as Yoros Castle which is believed to derive from the Greek for “oros (mountain)” or “ourios” (fair winds) and in its prime was more impressive than Rumeli Hisari as it covered twice as much ground which made it the largest castle on the Bosphorus. The castle located in Anadolu Kavagi has been closed to the public since archaeological excavations works began in 2010.
