Facts

  • The late 11th century Monastery Of Christ Pantepoptes is known to have been either founded or renovated by Anna Dalassena, mother of Emperor Alexius l Comnenus (1081-1118). Built on the summit of the City's fourth hill, above the underground cisterns, it commands a magnificent view of the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. The location explains the name Pantepoptes, i.e. the All-Seeing. The church is of the cross-inscribed type with four columns supporting a dome. Its ground-plan is that of a three-aisled church with two narthexes.
