This mosque, the oldest in Albania, is the oldest monument in the city.Dated to the year 1496, the mosque is named after Iliaz Bej Mirahorit (Ilia Panariti), who governed the city when it first began to function as an administrative hub under the Ottoman Empire.As the first domed mosque in Albania, it has significant cultural, historic, religious and architectural value.Inside the mosque are several murals of Mecca and Medina.The clock tower sitting just adjacent from the mosque was reconstructed in 2015 together with the square known as the “Garden of Paradise.”These renovations add value to Korça, while highlighting its architectural and cultural heritage.The reconstruction of the clock tower and the mosque square creates a harmonic counterpoint to the Old Bazaar and this corner of the city.
