Prizren buildings 22; in the background, but still dominating this scene, is the Sinan Pasha Mosque, built in 1600 or 1608 C.E.

Kate M wanted to know whether it had 'any connection to Mimar Sinan, the Ottoman architect'; as far as I know, the architect was unknown - certainly I haven't been able to find anything associating him with it, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything associating the two.

  2. As far as I know, there isn't a connection with Mimar Sinan; the architect is unknown.

    Apparently, though, the stones for the mosque were recycled ones first used in the mausoleum of the first Serbian emperor, Dusan.
