“The Basilica Cistern was the largest underground cistern, it was used to supply water to the city of Constantinople. The Byzantines had in purpose built large cisterns to store water in order not to be in short supply of water during the summer. The tank is a large underground room with columns that are 8 meters high and water basins. The lighting of columns combined with classical music playing in the background prevails a mystical atmosphere. Open all week from 9am to 5.30pm. Address: Alemdar Mh., Şeftali Sk No:6, Fatih, Turquie”

It is built on the edge of the Seraglio, a strategic location in the entrance of the Bosphorus Strait. It extends over 70 hectares and at the time was like a city within the city. The palace had four courtyards , gardens , kiosks and fountains. More than 4,000 people lived there including a thousand women in the harem.
