Eye-catching Mosque
Feb 2021
The mosque sets on an upper level, so it jumps out at you. Beautiful construction and gardens. It's located between the amphitheater and Shatervani in the center. Prayer is on Fridays- avoid visiting or visit and join a prayer.

Go at Sema cafe for best views
Aug 2020
The Fatih Mosque dominates the main square in old town Durres, as it's elevated against the central plateau. The Mosque dates back to the 1500's named after the Ottoman ruler who built it.
Like all other religious sites in Albania it was banned during the communist era and even its minaret ruined.
Best views of it are from the Sema cafe/restaurant just opposite it. Come for a drink or dinner and enjoy the views.

Small, beautiful mosque in the old town. We were there yesterday and would definitely recommend a visit. However, in this review I would also like to mention the extremely pleasant experience of meeting an elderly gentleman - member of the Muslim community - who is apparently taking care of the mosque. He speaks fine Italian, which my husband and I, as Romanians, can understand. He was most eager not only to introduce us the mosque, but also give us more information about the city and then guide us to the Orthodox and then Roman Catholic churches in the centre, which could have been rather hard to find.

Nice mosque
Jul 2019 • Family
Our AirBnB flat is located adjacent to the Fatih Mosque 🕌. The interior is not that special but the atmosphere seems cozy. There are two separate entrances for me and women. The “calls” are more like songs with a pleasant style.

A mosque that is incorporated into the city center square of Durres. It overlooks the square and there is an overlook towards the square which is nice. People often sit and congregate on the steps outside the mosque.

Nice church
Aug 2018 • Solo
Its not written much about different Things to see in Durres but one of them are the mosque in center of town. There was a Nice square after some walking from bus station and there this was. Looks Nice. Close to amphi theater. On the square cool fountain. The house of town was there. And Nice made area for the relaxing part. Then You could sit there an look up on the mosque I was also walking to the Beach area and there was some very Nice Things to see but no one have written about it.2 roman figures on statues ready for a fight. In the end of the Beach a very cool statue of a man sitting and Fishing. Restaurants a lot of them. A kind of tivoli Carousel for kids. And more Things. All of this have nothing to do under the mosque post I post it anyway. In this part of Durres I tought it was beautiful.
