The Galata Tower is a medieval stone tower in Istanbul, Turkey. Located in the Galata/Karaköy quarter of the city, it opened in 1348. French painter Pierre Prévost drew his “Panorama de Constantinople” from the tower in 1818. Forty years later, in 1858, Crimea Memorial Church was built in memory of the British soldiers who participated in the war the church was named after.
