Municipal museum of Ioannina: The restored main hall

Built in 1618 on the Byzantine castle of Ioannina, the Aslan Pasha Mosque is the most widely recognized architectural landmark of the city. It served as a place of worship for the Muslim population of Ioannina for over three centuries (until 1924) and in 1933 was converted to the Municipal Museum of the city.

It includes the restored main hall of the mosque and its exhibits reflect the diverse ethnic character of the city's past. It is divided in three sections, each dedicated to one of the ethnic groups that coexisted in the city: Greek, Turkish, and Jewish.
