Piri Reis Gallery

UNESCO included the 500th anniversary of Piri Reis’ World Map in 2013 celebrations and commemoration program due to his contributions to world cartography. Therefore the structure that is located inside the yard of Çimenlik Fortress and was used as ammunition depot during Çanakkale Battles has been re-designed under the name of Piri Reis Gallery. Inside the Gallery, the details about the life of the Great Turkish Sailor and Cartographer Piri Reis and copies of his maps are exhibited.
