As a 17th century Ottoman defense building, Seddülbahir Fortress has been an object to a documentation, conservation and restoration project since 1997. Located at the entrance of Dardanelles and in one of the most strategic corners of Gallipoli wars, fortress and project transformed into several different contexts through these years with changing enforcements. After 18 years on 2015, restoration application had begun, currently on-going and the site will be opened to the visitors as a museum in 2020.
