Hagia Sophia was built as a Greek Orthodox Basilica when construction began in 537 and served as a church until 1453. From 1453 until 1931 it was converted into a mosque. All references to the christian religion were removed or plastered over except one which was pointed out to us on our tour. In 1935 it began its life as a museum.

Bonne idée d'avoir mis la photo en noir et blanc. Il ne manque plus que le son. le choix du noir et blanc donne bien ce côte envoûtant que l'on ressent quand nous sommes à " Constantinople".
