Now this was an amazing place. The mosaic is from the 12th century and covers the entire floor of the cathedral!

And the macabre. This area was invaded by many including the Ottoman Empire. The story is the Turks tried to convert the Christians who refused so they were murdered. In protest when the cathedral was built a nave was created containing the bones of the beheaded. Windows upon windows look back at you.
