  • Beautiful old cathedral that now is a mosque. Very much worth a visit, but sadly there was no information signs or material (as far as I could see) which limits the experience a bit.
  • If it wasn't for the two minaret towers, you'd think you are about to enter a European cathedral. Yet there are clear indications of the true nature of this building: you must take your shoes off before entering, ladies must wear a head scarf etc. The building is beautiful both outside and inside, and a visit is highly recommended.
  • A nice, quiet place. Not as beautiful as some other mosques I've seen, such as in Istanbul, but nice, super tall white vaulted ceilings. Not bad.
  • Verg weird. A gothic church and a mosque at the same time
  • Well preserved amazing cathedral. Definitely worth to visit.
