  about Painted mosque

The Painted mosque was made in 1459 on the foundation of an older edifice. An example of early Constantinople style, this mosque is adorned with anelaborate painted fasade and interior, making it unique in Macedonia.
It is located by the Pena River. In the turbe next to the mosque is the body of the two women who provided money for the mosque to be built in 1459.
