The Gjirokastra bazaar, with its cobblestoned streets and medieval facades, makes up the center and heart of the Old Town. The first attraction welcoming visitors, it dates to the Ottoman period, although nothing is left of that period. The bazaar was rebuilt after a fire in the 19th century. The Bazaar Mosque, built in 1727 or otherwise called the Memi Bey Mosque, is among the last three mosques left from the 18th century, and the most important of the city.
