The combination of the building having the shape of a Mosque with many oriental ornaments still in place, but being a church is stunning. In addition the huge organ was being played when I was there which gave a magnificent acoustic experience. The painted dome...More

This place is an architectural gem. Beautiful interior design that preserves Ottoman simplicity at its best, but also superb statues of Jesus, the Virgin and various saints. The preservation has been top notch, one can still see a few Allahu Akbar frescoes on the walls....More

The mosque situated at the city centre square is a very good example of how culture supercedes religious differences. This mosque now is a Catholic church while retaining the original decorations of the mosque.
