These are some photos from the Aya Sofya (aka Hagia Sofia), which is an absolutely amazing architectural achievement! So beautiful. I don’t think these photos really do it justice, but they’re the best I can do.
We went here when Richie’s family were visiting, and I think we all enjoyed it immensely.
The Aya Sofya (Hagia Sofia in Greek, aka ‘the church of the Divine Wisdom’) was the cathedral of Constantinople from 360, when it was completed, until 1453, when the Ottomans conquered the city and converted it into a mosque. In 1934, it was made into a secular museum. For a bit of extra information about the Aya Sofya, here’s a link to a Wikipedia page about it. It will give you the gist anyway.
