There are two historic mosques in the UNESCO World Heritage listed old town of Safranbolu. One is the Köprülü Mehmet Paşa Camii, built in 1661. It sits next to the Yemeniciler Çarşısı, where shoes called yemeni were made.
The other more impressive mosque is the İzzet Mehmet Paşa Camii, built in 1798.
From the courtyard, you can also look down on the Demirciler Çarşısı (Ironsmith’s Bazaar), where many handmade metal goods are sold. Outside of the mosque you can see old Roman foundations through a fence.
