We were fortunate to find someone inside the mosque to allow us in. After removing our shoes we were allowed to look at the very old mosaics and paintings and I must say they were incredible!

Small an very beautiful mosque of the Ottoman Era. Not to be missed. Typical building type of the late Era once quite common in all Balkan cities but this one has a finely decorated arches and walls.

A must visit if in Tirana. Really enjoyed exploring this city. There is so much to see and do even if you only have a couple of days.
