Description

The Fatih Mosque (Albanian: Xhamia e Fatihut) is a Cultural Monument of Albania, located in Durrës. It was built in 1502, the year after the Moslem conquest of the city, and named for the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror, (Sulltan Mehmet Fatihu). Closed by the Communist authorities, the mosque became a cultural monument in 1973. Its minaret was torn down but rebuilt in a simpler style after the Communist dictatorship ended.
