The hora bears many legacies of its Ottoman past. During Turkish times churches were converted to mosques, and many more Muslim houses of worship were built from scratch, although most are now dilapidated. The most important is the pink-domed Mosque of Süleyman. Built in 1522 to commemorate the Ottoman victory against the knights, it was renovated in 1808.
