Tanners Mosque

The 15th century former church is known today as the Tanners’ Mosque. Judging from its location in the Oriental sector, it likely originally belonged to one of the groups of Oriental Christians, such as the Melkites or Jacobites. It was converted into a mosque by the Ottomans. It presents a mixture of local Cypriot Gothic and regional Crusader styles.
