I had a really difficult time choosing just a few photos for the Aya Sofia (Hagia Sofia). It was such a beautiful, ancient building that has served as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral, Roman Catholic cathedral and a mosque through it’s long history. It’s the greatest surviving example of Byzantine architecture and was the largest cathedral in the world for over 1,000 years!
