I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

More overlays of history

This building was the Augustinian monastery of Our Lady, built by the Venetians in the 1500's. When the Ottomans conquered the region in 1646, it was converted to a mosque and the roof was replaced with three domes—the minaret is a 19th century addition. Now it's a conservatory.

When I walked around the side of the building to take a picture of the domes, I found a market in the square, with a speaker blaring Jingle Bell Rock And I fled.
