‘Bitola - Ishak Çelebi Mosque’


A short follow-up from my previous photo about the Ottoman heritage in Bitola.

Two photos show the Ishak Çelebi Mosque.
The main photo is taken on the busy Magnolia Square and the second one (in the WS) taken on the other site of de mosque.
The Ishak Çelebi Mosque is the largest mosque in Bitola.
It was built in 1506 and was named after its founder, judge Ishak Çelebi. The minaret is 50 metres high.
Once the mosque was part of a much larger complex including a madrasa and shops with revenue coming in from surrounding vineyards and 20 watermills.

Information from The Bradt Travel Guide Macedonia.

Three other pictures are taken in the nearby old part of Bitola.
