• Yerebatan

    "“It’s called Yerebatan Sarayi.”

    Sarayi?

    Langdon wondered.

    As in Topkapi Sarayi?"

  • Yerebatan Medusa

    "Inverted as the damned,

    Langdon realized,

    picturing Botticelli’s Map of Hell and the inverted sinners he had placed in the

    Malebolge."

  • Bazar Spezie

    "Spice Bazar

    is one of the largest

    covered marketplaces

    in the

    world"

  • Moschea Blu

    "Langdon had once read that...

    the Blue Mosque’s balconied minarets had inspired the design for Cinderella’s iconic castle at

    Disney World."

  • Santa Sofia

    "Hagia Sophia.

    Not so much a building

    … as a mountain."

  • Topkapi

    "There, high above the city, rose the

    Ottoman

    stronghold of

    Topkapi Palace."

  • Torre Galata

    Galata Tower

    glistened above the quiet residences that dotted the hillside. The world looked strangely peaceful from here, a far cry,

    Langdon

    imagined..."

  • Stretto Bosforo

    "At a glance, the

    Bosporus

    appeared as a wide gash that severed Istanbul in two. In fact,

    Langdon

    knew the channel was the lifeblood of Istanbul’s commerce."
