Mosque of Gazi Deli Hüseyin Paşa in Rethymno












SHORT HISTORICAL INFORMATION:

The mosque was founded by Gazi Deli Hüseyin Paşa after the Ottoman conquest of Rethymno in 1646, through the transformation of the church of Santa Maria, which was the main church of the Catholic monastery of the Augustinians' order. The mosque was the center of a complex, which included an imaret (former church of San Francesco), a school and a library (former chapel of Corpus Christi). The founder established a pious foundation (vakıf) for its maintenance. The previous roof was replaced by three small domes. Its minaret was demolished after an earthquake around 1886 and a 33,07 metres high minaret, with two balconies (şerefe), built by the Christian Orthodox architect Georgios Daskalakes, was raised in 1890/91. The mosque was open until the Exchange of Population. In 1925 it was turned back into a church, of Agios Nikolaos, but finally it was and still is used as the municipal conservatoire of Rethymno.
