Saatli Camii (Clocktower Mosque)— In the town centre, built by Greeks as a church - converted to a mosque after 1928. Very atmospheric - beautiful building - courtyard. Not to be missed. Note also old houses and small artisan shops along the way.

This is obviously a church converted to a mosque. You can still feel how two religions can live together. It feels good.
