  • Some point a castle dominating the Elazig. Top city. Towers is very high. Outer walls of the building at an elevation of at least 2 meters wide. Looks very solid. Excavations in the Interior to continue was obvious. The Dungeon part down. Like a cave. Cannot be entered into, but it's pretty intriguing. Looking for some points of the walls made of glass protection. Needs to be the same system to other parties

  • Although historic, albeit from the smell of worn out.. Elazig is one of history's outstanding guard Harput, Elazığ, Turkey's most important historical, perhaps not-must be one of the spiritual Center. Although he left behind their old resplendent day, though, with the shrine of the Castle from spiritual things not lost something.. That's one of the best this is. ..
