Mangalem QuarterTo witness the vivid wood-stone glory of the traditionally Islamic quarters, Mangalem should be your next stop. The majestic 16th century Xhamia e Mbretit (Sultan’s mosque) with its carved ceilings, Xhamia e Plumbit (the lead mosque) named so in reference to the lead-coated dome and the 19th century Xhamia e Beqarëvet (The Bachelors’ mosque) by the Osumi River, with enchanting wall painting, is a must-see.
