The Holy Saviour in ChoraByzantine art in its purest form

fusion-of-horizons via VisualHunt / CC BY

Close to Edirnekapi (the main gate in the walls of Constantinople) is the Museum of Chora, home to the best examples of Byzantine art around today. Its history is parallel to that of the Hagia Sophia: it was first a church, then a mosque and now it's a museum. It’s not as easy to find as other places as it’s further from the city centre, but it’s worth the effort for the original mosaics and frescoes alone.
