Maiden's Tower (39 of 48)

The Maiden's Tower, also known in the ancient Greek and medieval Byzantine periods as Leander's Tower, sits on a small islet located in the Bosphorus strait off the coast of Uskudar in Istanbul, Turkey. Used as a lighthouse for centuries, the interior of the tower has been transformed into a popular café and restaurant, with an excellent view of the former Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman capital. Private boats make trips to the tower several times a day.
