Kariye Museum (Turkey). 'Tucked away in the shadow of Theodosius II’s monumental land walls, Kariye Museum (Chora Church) is adorned with mosaics and frescoes that were created in the 14th century and illustrate the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary. These are among the world’s best examples of Byzantine art, rivalled only by mosaics adorning churches in Ravenna, Italy.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/turkey/istanbul/sights/museum/kariye-museum-chora
