Ruins of Byzantine Palace
From the roof of the hotel you can see these ruins of a Byzantine Palace uncovered when the Four Seasons Hotel Started construction of a new tower. they are going to preserve these ruins. A block to the east, behind a friends carpet shop, is an underground passage that goes to a part of the palace that has been excavated. I had photographed in the palace by invitation of the carpet shop owner and had black and white photos in a local art gallery. The photo is on my web site.
