There are stories and legends told from language to language about many historical buildings today. There are also countless legends about the Galata Tower. Some of these, and the most well-known, are as follows:
Women's Corpses with Their Hearts Ripped Out
'When it started to be used as an observatory during the Murat period, interesting events began to happen around the Galata Tower. Almost every night, the bodies of women with their hearts ripped out are dumped next to the tower. After these events, which caused unrest among the public, the observatory was closed. But things don't settle down. And when the events continue for years, people living in the region migrate to other districts and do not even travel to Galata, let alone live in Galata on one side. The mystery behind the murders and murders continues until the detective agency founded by Abdulhamit solves the events. As a result of the work of the agency, it becomes clear that a secret cult committed the murders.'
The Love of Giants
'It's the sixth century. It is swinging beautifully in the Tues of the Marmara Sea. This beauty is so fascinating, so revealing that people have turned their backs even to Istanbul, the beauty of the world, that is, Constantinople with its name at that time, they are watching this beauty. This is a lonely and sad beautiful Maiden Tower. One day, an Istanbul boy is standing right in front of the Maiden's Tower. That's the Galata Tower, too. Maiden Tower falls in love with this young man at first sight. So how is it possible to be indifferent to the appearance of such a beautiful. The Galata Tower also immediately falls in love with the Maiden's Tower. Their love did not fit into the hearts of both of them over time. But it is impossible for them to reach each other, to confess their love. Both of them are worried about not getting back together. One day a man came out and came next to the Galata Tower. And somehow convinced that man to take his love letters to the Maiden's Tower. This is the man, I mean, Hezarfen Ahmet Çelebi, filled all those letters in his shirt, put on his wings and left himself for this love from the Galata Tower into the void. A little with the help of the wind blowing that day, a little with the help of Hezarfen's dreams, this love began to float in the air. But just as he was about to arrive at the Maiden's Tower, all the letters spilled out of his shirt collar into the sea. Galata jumped up nervously because it didn't happen this time. But the sea could not remain indifferent in the face of such a love; it carried all the letters one by one to the Maiden's Tower with its waves. The Maiden's Tower, which reciprocated her love, shone with happiness again. And of course, the Galata Tower, which sees him in this state, is also. It is precisely thanks to this love that they have both become beautiful day by day. And they have continued to fascinate people for 15 centuries.'
According to a rumor, it is said that a person who goes to the Galata Tower for the first time with their beloved marries them. But the rules is that none of the two should have visited the tower before.
