Zile castle is the place where Roman Emperor Julius Caesar spoke his famous words veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered) to notify the Roman Senate about his bloody victory against King Pharnaces of Pontus. However, the famous castle is now facing erosion and destruction. Stones are rolling off the castle walls down towards houses built on the mountainside, making residents around the castle nervous.
