CALayer *imagecontent=[CALayer layer];

imagecontent.masksToBounds = YES;

You cannot add gesture recognizers to layers, so you need to add a gesture recognizer to its containing view, and then perform an additional test to see if the tap happens to overlap the layer in question.

Add tap gesture recognizer to the parent view of the layer (let's assume that it's called parentView), then add this code to the selector of your gesture recognizer:

- (void)handleTap:(UITapGestureRecognizer *)sender {
    CGRect layerFrame = CGRectMake(16, 26, 153, 153);
    CGPoint tapPoint = [sender locationInView:parentView];
    if (CGRectContainsPoint(layerRect, tapPoint)) {
        // The tap happened inside the rectangle of your layer
