Karadjoz-Beg Mosque (1557)

Karadjoz-Beg Mosque

Toward the middle of the 16th century – according to some sources around 1564 – Nesuh-Aga Vučjaković erected a mosque beneath the Clock Tower, near the Kujundžiluk and the Old Bridge, also well-known as the ‘mosque under the lime-tree’. This building is unusual due to its artistic infl uences deriving from the coastal area (Dalmation-Mediterranean School) seen in some of its decorative elements.
