The mosque from the 17 century is one of the oldest of the city. Painting outside but even more inside are just amazing. Entrance is free you just need to take off your shoes of course and not come during the prayer times !

This was my first mosque I ever visited. I tell you, I was nervous to visit. But when I went inside, I was greeted by a very very kind man who welcomed us. This was a beautiful place to see. I was impressed.

The place is more than 300 years old with the old wall-paintings and decorations still existing . If youre a muslim , or want to experience a muslim feel prayer , id suggest friday special prayers at about midday.

One of the best mosques in Albania. It is build in the center of Tirana together with an icon clock at its left side. This is a relaxing place to visit. Once a hospital was built with it but later it was moved away. A place to visit.
