Genovese Castle, Enez, Turkey

17 vots
The small citiy of Enez is directly at the Turkish-Greek border. At ancient Greek times it was called Ainos and thanks to its habour it had become a rich town. Later Enez belonged to Pergamon and inherited by the Romans. Justinian, emperor of the East-Roman empire, built a fortress. Later, under Niccolo Gattilusio Enez belonged a rich Genuese family, which had been accepted by the Emperor in Byzanz in 1379. After the fall of Konstantinopel 1453 enez had been occupied by Sultan Mehmed II. personally. Today its a small and calm town with a little local tourism. Nearby are flat bays and salt ponds where you can see many different kinds of birds. In 2008 I could watch many Flamingos and a single black stork.

Direkt an der türkisch-griechischen Grenze liegt der kleine Ort Enez. Bereits in der griechischen Antike war der Ort unter dem Namen Ainos durch seinen Mittelmeerhafen zu Wohlstand gekommen. Später gehörte der Ort zu Pergamon und wurde an die Römer vererbt. Der Kaiser des Oströmischen Reiches (Justinian) ließ die Stadt zu einer Festung ausbauen. Unter Niccolo Gattilusio gehörte die Stadt einer genuesischen Patrizierfamilie, was 1379 auch vom Kaiser in Byzanz anerkannt wurde. Nach der Eroberung Konstantinopels im Jahre 1453 und dem Zusammenbruch von Byzanz, wurde Enez von Sultan Mehmed II. persönlich besetzt. Heute ist Enez eine kleine ruhige Stadt mit etwas lokalem Tourismus. In der Nähe gibt es flache Buchten und Salztümpel mit vielen Vöglen. 2008 konnte ich hier eine Menge Flamingos und einen Schwarzstorch beobachten.
