View looking north along the top of the ancient city wall at Sinope. This portion of the wall is slightly east of the harbor area and guards the entrance to the peninsula and citadel.
The walls probably date back to the 4th century B.C. and were frequently refurbished. They are 1.3 mi. (2 km.) long and over 80 ft. (25 m.) tall. There are numerous towers and seven gates.
