Janissaries Mosque

Janissaries Mosque Review

Kastelli hill creates a backdrop to the Janissaries Mosque, built at the water's edge when Turks captured the town in 1645 after a two-month siege. You can enter the building only when the town uses it to host temporary art and trade exhibitions, but the presence of the domed structure at the edge of the shimmering sea lends Hania an exotic air. Hours vary from show to show; the place is most often closed.
