Photographer's Note

Before leaving southern bank of the Horn of Gold and its musts, an ultimate wonder Byzantine is worth the turning: Saint-Saver-in-Chora. Preserved tourist hordes, forgotten with the foot of the old walls occidental of the city, this splendid church of XIe century shelters pure masterpieces in mosaics of XIVe century, telling the life and the miracles of Christ. Behind the church, a small garden invites to the meditation. A bracket of greenery in a calm and popular district, from which it is necessary to be profited they are rare on northern bank, where awaits us Istanbul contemporary, encumbered and bubbling.

Avant de quitter la rive sud de la Corne d'Or et ses musts, une ultime merveille byzantine vaut le dιtour: Saint-Sauveur-in-Chora. Prιservιe des hordes touristiques, oubliιe au pied des anciennes murailles occidentales de la citι, cette ravissante ιglise du XIe siθcle abrite de purs chefs-d'œuvre en mosaοques du XIVe siθcle, contant la vie et les miracles du Christ. Derriθre l'ιglise, un petit jardin invite ΰ la mιditation. Une parenthθse de verdure dans un quartier calme et populaire, dont il faut se dιlecter: elles sont rares sur la rive nord, lΰ oω nous attend l'Istanbul contemporain, encombrι et bouillonnant.
