This is a single-nave church located the southern part of the Medieval City, dating from the 15th century. The construction suffered a series of modifications as part of the process of its conversion into a mosque, under the name of “Bοrazan Mescit”, during the Ottoman rule. Bοrazan Ali Baba was the name of a trumpeter in the service of Suleiman the Magnificent (1494-1566); his tomb may still be seen within a structure on the northern flank of the church.
Interventions effected at the time of the church’s conversion into a mosque were to seriously undermine the static stability of the construction, hence the need for some thorough works of rehabilitation, launched already during the ‘90s and still under way.
