First of all, I'm surprised not to see Anatolia in the list of the castles' locations because Anatolia is very rich on that. The Castle I'll be telling you is a Byzantine Structure, in Istanbul, laterly conquered by the Ottoman Empire in 1453.This conquer ended the Byzantine empire and lead the existence of Renaissance. Castle has oval towers (7 of them) to avoid cannon impacts as much as possible. And many dungeons to keep prisoners. It's architecture is not very complicated but it has 7 walls going inner and inner parallel to it's thickness. It also has 3 deep ditches surrounding the walls. Oil holes are located over the gates.
