    “We now return to Yedikule Kapı and resume our walk along the walls. From Yedikule Kapı to the next gate, Belgrad Kapı, is a distance of 620 metres. All of the eleven towers that guard the inner wall along this stretch are still standing, as are all but one of those in the outer wall. An inscription on the inner wall records repairs by Leo III and his son Constantine V c.730, and one on the tenth tower of the outer wall notes a restoration by John VIII in 1434.
    Belgrad Kapı was known in Byzantium as the Second Military Gate. The gate came by its Turkish name because Süleyman the Magnificent settled in its vicinity many of the artisans he brought back with him after his capture of Belgrade in 1521.”
