Zoodochos Pege was founded over a spring in the reign of the Emperor Leo (457-74); it has remained in Greek hands despite the conquest of the city and is about 500m beyond the city walls in Istanbul. The present church dates from 1833. An interesting legend surrounds the spring: it is said that a monk was frying fish there when he was told the city had fallen. He commented that there was as much chance of the city falling to the Turks as his fish jumping back into the water, at which the half fried fish leapt from his pan into the water ! Fish still swim there today, though the half fried one has not been spotted.
