This medieval stone tower was utilized for surveillance of the harbor in the Golden Horn, Istanbul. After the conquest of Constantinople in 1453, the tower was used to detect fires in the city.

Description

The Galata Tower is a Great Building that does not belong to any particular age. It produces a number of random Goods goods of the player's current age every 24 hours. From the Modern Era onward it produces double amount of unrefined goods. Additionally it gives a certain chance to repel a plunder for a number of tries. The number of tries is reset with every collection from this building.

Queen Teuta

Similarly to the Oracle of Delphi, Blueprints blueprints are obtainable via an early game questline or by contributing to other players' Galata Tower.

Show/Hide Quests
Quest 1 (Time for Action!):
    Queen Teuta: ????
    Request"Collect a plundered production"
    Reward: Coins 4000 coins
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Those fools! I have been tracking those plunderers for weeks now and they turn up at your doorstep. We must block their advances and put an end to this. They will know our names when we are through with them!
Quest 2 (Attracting Attention!):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! So we finally meet face to face. As I said, I am Queen Teuta. I've had my eye on your impressive city for quite some time. This Blueprint is the first taste of what defensive measures could lay before you! If you are up for the challenge...
    Request"Pay 5200 Supplies"
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! My instinct was right, it seems we were destined to be true allies. Nevertheless, you will need to improve your defenses if we are to work together in catching our enemies. I attract many adversaries...
Quest 3 (Protect What's Yours):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! My sources say your existence hasn't gone unnoticed by many. Others will follow, both friend and foe. Enemies can and will attack to plunder your buildings if you don't protect them...
    Request"In a production building, finish a 15-minute production 9 times." and "Gather Coins 4000 coins."
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint, Motivation kit.png Self-Aid Kit
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Luckily, there are many measures we can take to limit and even stop the plundering. Make sure to collect your productions on time to make sure motivated buildings are not plunderable. Take this and try it out...
Quest 4 (City Attacks and Defense):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! While impressive, your city is always vulnerable to attack whether you initiate it or not! Using a self-aid kit on a favored building can block it from being plundered by your enemies. We must take action!
    Request"Use a self-aid kit on a building in your city to prevent it from being plundered OR polish 25 buildings for other players"
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! That's it! Don't forget, you can use self-aid kits on any building you desire without your enemies knowing. A trap is only a trap if you don't know about it.
Quest 5 (???):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! The Galata Tower is a great gift I bestow onto you. Let me explain why. When your enemies succeed in an attack and try to plunder, there is a chance that the plunder attempt will be repelled and the attacker will gain nothing!
    Request"Build 2 Residential buildings from your age OR Build 3 residential buildings from the previous age"
    Reward: Blueprints 2 Galata Tower Blueprints
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! I expected this, news of your new Great Building has reached the outer lands. We should expect some threatening company any day and make the necessary preparations.
Quest 6 (Our Enemies Approach):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! I enjoy attracting attention, but the right attention! My informants have brought news of incoming scouts already. I will not take this lightly. We must strengthen your army!
    Request"Recruit 2 units from your age OR solve this simple negotiation" and "Gather 40 goods, e.g. from goods buildings or by trading"
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Help your allies by contributing to their Great Buildings, prehaps they will return the favor on your Galata Tower! Your defenses are growing day by day and so is my impression of you Ruler.
Quest 7 (Man the City!):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Your units are ready and awaiting orders. Assigning units to your defending army is important as they are your front line against plunderers. Will you be taking care of it or will you leave it up to your army?
    Request"Use the city auto-defense option in the army management OR assign at least 2 units to your defending army in army management"
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint, Defend medium.png 20% Defender Boost
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! You are learning fast, but there is always room for improvement. I think your army will benefit greatly from this additional defense gift.
Quest 8 (Trust in Defense):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Your army is in place! Such progress, but let's give them that extra boost. The Friends Tavern has an abundance of defensive benefits you can activate at any time to help protect your city!
    Request"Use a defender boost item from your inventory OR Activate 1 boost in the Friends Tavern" and "gain 105 total population"
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Did you see you can activate a shield in the Friends Tavern to completely block attacks on your city? The ultimate defense!
Quest 9 (Defense Boost):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! The plans for the Galata Tower are nearly complete! The hour of revenge has come, let's put this army to good use. Defense is the first act of war after all!
    Request"Defeat this very small army OR solve this simple negotiation"
    Reward: Blueprints 1 Galata Tower Blueprint
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! You did it and for this, I award you with my final gift. I must say the excitement of revenge is intoxicating don't you think!
Quest 10 (Defense Boost):
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! The final plans are yours! Construct the Galata Tower in your city as a symbol of your defensive strength to any enemy who may come your way.
    Request"Build the Galata Tower in your city OR contribute 10 Forge Points to Great Buildings"
    Reward: Forge.png 2 Forge Points
    Queen Teuta: Ruler! Protecting your city is every great ruler's basic duty. You have come far, the key now is to continue to defend and let your city flourish.
