    En las guias aparecen muchos sitios para visitar en Estambul, pero uno que no hay que perderse, aparte de los importantes, es la Cisterna de la Basílica de Yerebatan. La combinacion del sonido del agua de la cisterna y de la musica clasica, junto a la luz tenue, te haran escapar por un momento del bullicio de mercados y las calles de Estambul.
    Tambien y muy tranquili es el cafe de P.L..

    The Basilica Cistern...

    The Basilica Cistern (Yerebatan Saray) is sort of UNDER the beaten path. It's one of the coolest places to see in Istanbul--a huge underground water tank held up by hundreds of columns, a few of which have obviously once been used for other purposes...see my photo! Sometimes there are art exhibits held in here--it's a great place for an installation.

    the Cisterne - an underground place with hundreds of columns and a very special atmosphere: music and dimmed lights - I am so happy, someone pointed that place out to us!!!!!!!
