Keçi Burçu

Across the road from Mardin Kapı the walls continue further east. Almost immediately one can enter one of the many defensive towers, a bastion called Keçi Burçu (Goat's Bastion). It dates from 1029-1037, though a third tower has been rebuilt in 1052has been well-restored and houses a mixture of tea garden and shops. There are more of these restored towers, and I expect many more will follow.

I add here pictures I took from the top of the Keçi Burçu, many looking towards the walls at Mardin Gate.
