This beautiful, triple-domed mosque was converted from a Franciscan church in 1657 and is now used as a music conservatory and concert hall. Even if there’s no show on, it’s definitely worth peaking in for a look. The building’s minaret, the former bell tower, was built in 1890 and is undergoing lengthy restoration.
