Piri Reis Gallery

UNESCO included the 500th anniversary of Piri Reis’ World Map in the 2013 celebrations and commemoration program due to his contributions to world cartography. Therefore the structure that is situated 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, some of the copies of some of the maps drawn by Piri Reis are exhibited.
