Built by Constantine the Great to contain his tomb and the relics of the Twelve Apostles, and rebuilt by renowned architects under Justinian, this important church was the resting place of several Byzantine emperors and saints. Destroyed by the Crusades and an earthquake, it was replaced with the Fatih Mosque in 1461.
