Constantinople, Part 6: The Basilica Cistern

After Agia Sophia, we went underground in the nearby Basilica Cistern, which was VERY interesting. Of course, it was the Turkish standard 10 lira ($7) to enter something the Byzantines built, but it was worth it. The lighting was low, so not many photos came out, but it gave some of them a nice effect.

Typically, there was even a coffee shop set up in one dry corner of this underground cistern. How they love their coffees here! Posted by Picasa
