"Where precisely do you think you're going, gentlemen? This is a prison, not an inn."
Mordillah to Jack Sparrow and Edward Teague[src]

The Turkish Prison was a prison fortress located in the Mediterranean Sea, near the Ottoman Empire. It was set into the side of a cliff. At the time Jack Sparrow was incarcerated, Mordillah was the warden.

History[edit | edit source]

"Not quite according to plan."
"Complications arose, ensued, were overcome.
Joshamee Gibbs and Jack Sparrow[src]

Jack Sparrow escaping the prison.

Prisoners were dragged along a stone bridge and through large, foreboding gateway. The bridge was lined with hanging cages,containing living prisoners who often became snacks for the ravens that circled above the prison. Such prisoners as died within the fortress were cast off a cliff into the churning sea in simple, wooden coffins.

Captain Jack Sparrow somehow infiltrated the Turkish Prison in the year following his escape from Port Royal, and escaped from his cell with the help of Captain Teague. Jack freed several prisoners, and defeated a prison warder in combat. Jack found a drawing of the key to the Dead Man's Chest on the body. He then defeated Mordillah the Warden and escaped by sneaking into a coffin, and getting cast into the Mediterranean Sea like the other corpses. Jack was able to blast his way out of the casket, and used its rotting occupant's leg as an oar to reach the Black Pearl.
