Hagia Sophia was a church back in Byzantion times. After Istanbul was conquered, it was turned into a Mosque.

Maiden Tower: Legend says, once upon a time, a king had a dear daughter. A fortuneteller told the king that his daughter was cursed and would be poisoned and dead, so the king decided to move his daughter away. He made this tower in the middle of the sea so no one could sneak in there; however, a snake managed to get in the boat which was carrying food to the tower. After sneaking in to the tower, the snake bit the princess to death. We won't know if the legend is true or not, but we for sure now that Maiden Tower is a place to visit for sure!
