Photographer's Note

Girne Castle, Northern Cyprus..

North Cyprus Girne Castle in Cyprus dates to the 11th century with the construction of thick walls around an ancient Roman fort. Completely renovated in 1290, Kyrenia arose as a stronghold that for centuries protected its inhabitants from attack. Never taken by a direct attack, the castle succumbed to invaders only after blockades hindered the delivery of food and supplies.

Thanks to Burak for above information :)
