Yoros Castle is a Byzantine ruined castle at the confluence of the Bosphorus and the Black Sea, to the north of Joshua's Hill, in Istanbul, Turkey. It is also commonly referred to as the Genoese Castle, due to Genoa’s possession of it in the mid-15th century.

Utrip Tips

*The castle is closed to visitors due to extensive excavations and renovations; however, viewing the castle from a slight distance is still worth the visit.
