We will start our Byzantine Relics Tour with Hagia Sophia.

Then your tour guide will take you to The Great Palace Mosaic Museum. The museum houses mosaics from the Byzantine period, unearthed at the site of the Great Palace Of Constantinople.

Your Next Step will be the Monastery of the Pantocrator (Molla Zeyrek Cami), which is a mosque now in Istanbul, made of two former Eastern Orthodox churches and a chapel. It represents the most typical example of the architecture of the Byzantine middle period in Constantinople and is, after Hagia Sophia, the 2nd largest religious edifice built by the Byzantines still existent in Istanbul.
