Photographer's Note

The last place we visited on our way out was Hagia Irene (Aya Irini), located in the outer courtyard. One has to get an additional ticket for it, since it is considered a separate museum. I had never visited Hagia Irene before, so we bough a ticket for my son and my museum card (because of my Turkish citizenship) got me in for free.

Hagia Irene is the oldest church of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire. It was also the second largest church in Istanbul after Hagia Sophia. Hagia Irene, originally meaning “sacred peace” (Hagia Eirene), has a special meaning as the first place where Turkish museology was born.
