Walking Tour of the Hagia Sophia

Our walk through the Hagia Sophia (pronounced Aya Sophia) was a highlight of our trip to Istanbul. The Santa Sophia was originally a church, the Cathedral of Constantinople, until the mid-1400s when it became a mosque. In 1935, the Hagia Sophia opened as a museum and a recent addition – these extraordinary chandeliers – help it sparkle like diamonds.

I hope you enjoyed the tour!
