Considered to be constructed in ancient period, the castle only has one bush remained and there is a harbour in the front. Small boats sailing under the bridges which divide the harbour into two gather together in the inner pool and forms a great scenery for photographs. The tower, where you can find detailed information regarding the history of the region and which is used under the name of Piri Reis (famous navigator from Gallipoli) today, should be among the places to visit. To catch the most beautiful forms of the nature, we recommend you have a weekend break at Gulf of Saros, known as Melas Kolpos in the ancient age, which is very close to Gallipoli. One of the most visited spots in the region, this heaven-like place is among the self-cleaning gulfs in the world.
Among the domestic places one should definitely see, Gallipoli Peninsula Historical National Park hosts monuments and martyrdoms for those who lost their lives during the Battle of Canakkale. You will grieve, get emotional, get lost in thoughts amidst the memories at every corner and if you walk around this large area with a guide, you will get more detailed information. There, you must see Kilitbahir Castle, listed in Cultural Assets in Need of Protection; Namazgah Bastion that was turned into museum; Canakkale Martyrs’ Memorial that was built for Turkish soldiers and Conkbayiri where attack order was given.
Fish and sea products in Gallipoli are quite famous thanks to its connections with Marmara and Aegean Sea. Offering fresh fish at every hour of the day, the most popular one is of course sardine. Local people eats sardine without cleaning, we recommend you eat it as grilled without fishbone. Since you are in Gallipoli, don’t forget to try Cheese Halva and Mevlevi Dessert which are among the famous tastes of the region as well as seafoods.
