      The Basilica has been built during the 6th century, when Istanbul was Constantinople, and the dominant civilization was the Byzantine. The ceiling of the Cistern is supported by 336 column, which has largely taken by existing temples… In the Basilica-cistern you will visit the places described on the book (such as the statue of Medusa), but also many other monuments and artifacts, such as the teardrop column and much more… #inferno #tour #istanbul #basilicacistern
