To a visitor unaware of its purpose or its history it could easily be mistaken for some sacred underground temple with the many columns that give it an impressive atmosphere.
Commissioned in the 4th century by the Roman Emperor Constantin, the Hagia Irene today is both a concert hall and a museum worth exploring.
One of the oldest and most important religious landmarks of Byzantine Constantinople.

Decorated with rare marble and golden mosaics that glitter in the darkness, the Hagia Sophia took my breath away.
