Inside a neighbourhood stands this building. It had once much better times. Today it seems as neglected. I found it closed.

Ottoman building of the 15th century. Its name probably came from its unique multicolored minaret (alaca). The building was used as mosque, priests school and it was the place where poor people of its time found help and food. Nowadays is a museum and periodically...More

A most marvellous exhibition, you have to absorb the photos I will post or visit to get an idea of how amazingly this exhibition has been put together. Stunningly evocative images of the Greek sea and it's memories, and a beautiful silk printed centrepiece.Thoroughly recommended.

I love that the exterior is nothing special and that you can walk right by without noticing it. It keeps this jewel box secret and sacred. The 15th C mosque and house of charity is beautifully intact, and has elaborate trompe l'oeil frescoes and domes...More

Stunning building with beautiful architecture. Shame it's been left to crumble and the stunning calligraphy had been masked over by historically ignorant architects with no interest in preserving historical buildings (when they're Ottoman). Well worth a visit and in need of more TLC by the...More

In a sea of byzantine churches, The Alatza Imaret is an island of islam, very well preserved and with nice caligraphic frescoes inside; at my visit it doesn't look like it is still used as a mosque, but more like a museum.
