Agora market is one of main attractions of the old part of the town. The market was opened in 1911. The shopping rows here are covered and built in the shape of a cross. The market is strictly oriented to the cardinal. Another interesting market is called "Leather Quarter". As you might guess from the title, here you will find the largest choice of leather. If you have not found what you need, go to one of several sewing workshops located nearby and order clothing or shoes.
San Francisco Church is the main religious landmark of this place. Nowadays the church has been turned into Archaeological Museum. Just like many historic religious buildings of this town, the church was turned into a mosque during the Turkish conquest. Today bathing pools and a minaret remind of those times.
