Photographer's Note

Most of today's castle of Ioannina was built during Turkish rule and within it there are older,Byzantine buildings. Inside the castle there are two acropolis. In the north-east Acropolis the Royal estates of the Byzantine sovereigns were built. Today at the top, Aslan Pasha's mosque dominates (1618).

Set within the confines of the Fortress of Ioannina, this 17th cent miracle of Ottoman architecture lives up to its claim of being among the most grandiose mosque constructions in Greece. Its superb interior is elaborately decorated and provides the ideal setting for Ioannina's Municipal Museum.
