The Turkish mosque from Ierapetra is beautiful, makes you think at the past. It is situated in a large square in the middle of a quiet central neighbourhood with tiny streets and plants coming out from people's opened doors. We could not visit the interior(although...More

The mosque is located in a square in the back streets of Ierapetra. It's not especially lovely or unusual, just a site to see along the way. Worth a walk by.
