The attacks on Albania’s religious communities (Sunni and Bektashi Muslims, Catholic and Orthodox Christians) by the Communist regime led to the destruction and desecration of many places of worship, meaning that the small mosque in the south-eastern corner of Skanderbeg Square is a particularly precious jewel.

Built in the eighteenth century, its painted walls both internal and external feature trees, waterfalls and cityscapes which are rare in Islamic art.
