The Aya Sofya or Haghia Sofia was the Church of the Divine Wisdom and regarded as the greatest church in Christendom up until the fall of Constantinople when it became a mosque.

The Grand Bazaar, more than just shopping. A labyrinthine of colour since the mid 15th Century.

Little courtyards are revealed if you explore the edges of the bazaar.
