ABOUT THE TREASURE

What: Mosque
Where: Greece, Lesbos
When: National Revival / Brankovani

Yeni Tzami (Mosque) is in the city of Mytilene on the Aegean island of Lesbos. It was built on the site of an old Turkish marketplace called Epano Skala by Naziri Moustafa Aga Koulaxizi at the beginning of the 19th century. Yeni Tsami or “The New Mosque” derives its name from the fact that it is the largest and the most recently built mosque on Lesbos. Parts of its once rich mural decorations can still be seen.
