Not to be missed while visiting the main square, the mosque is not only beautiful to look at, but also plays a significant role in recent Albania history.

This is one of the oldest mosques in Albania. On the inside of it you can see some very interesting paintings that you can't find in other mosques.

The mosque is not very large but well worth a visit in off hours when you can take your time and appreciate the details. The woodworking, the painted detail, the ceiling - all are well preserved and well worth appreciating the workmanship. The people working there are welcoming of tourists (gentle guidance is provided for shoe removal, covering up, etc)... More

Constructed in 1819 or 1821 this mosque is not only beautiful, but also has it´s story during the recent history of Albania. Apparently the mosque was closed during Albanians commusist regime. On January 18, 1991, despite opposition from communist authorities, 10,000 people entered carrying flags. The event was one of the milestones in the rebirth of religious freedom in Albania.... More

Don't miss this small, but beautiful, mosque with its floral artwork on the domed ceiling and walls. Be sure to notice the buildings in the art. The attendants here are very friendly, too.

Small but very beautifully tiled 18th century mosque that survived during various wars. It was closed when the communist took over. It reopened in 1991 without permission from the government when 10,000 people attend service. It has remained open since then. Please be respectful - no shoes-no shorts-no bare shoulders.

Thank CatzandMike
