The clock tower is right next to the port. It’s not too eye-catching. I didn’t have time to take pictures. I added a few street scenes to get to know this small town in the westernmost part of Turkey. Olive trees are planted everywhere and canned fish is also very famous.
The landmark building on the harbour side, 5 stories high, was built in 1897. It was the Italian consul and Canakkale businessman Vitalis who left 100,000 francs of gold when he died in France and built this clock tower.
When I came here and looked at it from a distance, I saw the mosque and the bell tower. At a certain time every day, someone would ring the bell as a reminder, but the locals said that three times at a time should not be more than one, which will bring good luck.
Just by the sea, next to the pier, there is a ferry to the opposite shore, which is convenient for those who drive by car. It only takes more than 3 hours to get to Istanbul by boat, but it takes about 5 hours.
Very nice small city, I study and work here
