Old Istanbul-2

 

The arch at the right is in the old city walls.  You'll see that the middle house is a kind of version of the old ones.

Imagine having a city wall right on your block.
Tom Wilson: There must be quite a few places in Europe where this happens, Larry - I think of Lucca in Italy which is still entirely encircled by its city walls - a walk around the top is an entertaining stroll smile

it fits in nicely

always good to build with the same style in my opinion
Tom Wilson: Yes, it certainly doesn't stand out like a sore thumb!
Architecturally speaking - it must be a really fascinating place to walk around!
Tom Wilson: Put Istanbul on your bucket list, Elizabeth - I've been about four times and would still be happy to go back!

Interesting Tom, I wonder if the city wall still exist?
Tom Wilson: I think so, Chris - they have started to protect their monuments.
An attempt to fit in without just copying
Tom Wilson: And doing it quite well, I thought.
