Photographer's Note

Two and half days in Istanbul, is it reasonable!
Sure, all alternatives are good to see a wonder ...

And a great pleasure to have finally got my camera fixed!

Hagia Sophia (Greek Ἁγία Σοφία / Hagia Sophia, which means "Holy Wisdom", "Divine Wisdom", a name taken form in Turkish Ayasofya) is an ancient Christian basilica of Constantinople the sixth century, became a mosque in the fifteenth century under the leadership of Sultan Mehmed II. It is built on the historical peninsula of Istanbul. Since 1934, it is no longer a place of worship but a museum. Its esplanade is a measure of the glory of Byzantium. The dedication of the church, often dubbed the Great Church, was dedicated to Christ, "Wisdom of God", according to theologians.
