Galata Tower Closed To Visitors

The Galata Tower will be closed to visitors for a month starting today due to earthquake strengthening and facade repair works.

The 8th floor of the tower was closed to visitors in November last year for roof repairs. In the meantime, the conservation of the tower’s realm was completed and placed in its place.

Georadar studies were carried out on the body walls and floor of the building.

The exterior facade of the tower will also be repaired in line with the detected details. During the restoration works, nearly 400 migratory bird nests on the body walls of the tower will not be damaged.

All applications will be carried out taking into account the migration season of bird nests and swifts.

The work on the tower, which was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in 2013 and is one of the important structures of the Istanbul skyline, is planned to be completed in April.
