A very well maintained and old mosque designed by a famous architect. Interesting because you can see this mosque, a synagogue, and a Catholic church from this location. There are head wraps for ladies to borrow before entering and a comfortable place for all to remove shoes. I saw a lady inside with her coat hunched over her head. I highly recommend showing more respect for this actively used mosque and wear head coverings correctly when entering. Otherwise, enjoy it from the outside and move along.

Extremely beautiful. Quite little but the colors make you calmer as soon as you enter. The red carpet married with the blue and beige walls makes the place very luxurious, too. You don't have to pay any fee for visiting this wonderful moschee, don't pass by, it 's worth!

This was my first visit of mosque at all. Maybe influenced by our traditional own christian youth i excepted something else. But when I was there i find that simply mosaic and decoration as beautiful peaceful place. I am looking forward dor visiting another mosque in future to make comparasion.

A small mosque in the ethnic part of Town. It was designed by the Michelangelo of the Ottoman Empire. The inside is smaller than you would expect and tastefully decorated. As is normal for mosques women must have their heads covered and everyone must remove their shoes before entering. Photography was permitted.
An historic 16th century mosque built over natural thermal baths and in need of some refurbishment but certainly worth a visit.
