Malatya Fortress Remains

Turkish landscape has many historical sightseeing places such as fortress’. Some of them are well preserved so they can be visited by the tourists. But some of them aren’t lucky. Even tough they had a critical location for the site in the past, they are only ruins at present.

Old Malatya city walls are good samples for this sort of archeological buildings.The construction started in 78 AD. But it couldn’t be able to build for a long time. It was completely built in East Roman Empire era and its mission was to defend the old city. Turkish tribes dominated the region and the fortress was restored. After this era, it had been used actively for a long time. Then it was forgotten.
