1600 YEAR OLD BASILICA

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

A basilica about 1600 years old and 20 meters from the coast in Lake İznik has been sighted for the first time.

Spotted by chance in the snapshots which the Bursa Metropolitan Municipality has taken as part of a project launched in İznik to determine the historical heritage of the area is believed to be submerged in the lake as a result of an earthquake which occurred in 740 A.D.

The municipality is planning to turn the edifice into an underwater museum.
