Business Description:

The Clock Tower of Korçë (Albanian: Kulla e sahatit e Korçës) is a historic Ottoman Turkish clock tower dating from the 18. century and recently reconstructed. It is situated in the Old Bazaar of Korçë city in Albania.
The clock tower was built in 1784 after an agreement between Muslim Albanians and Orthodox Moscolopans (Moscopole was a centre of the Aromanian minority in Albania), and was part of the Mosque Complex of Iliaz Hodja built in 1490.
