The Gambler's Inn

An Ottoman structure constructed towards the end of the 17th century.

The shape and proportion of the ornamented Gothic arch at the entrance are not compatible with the other arches in the building and they are contrary to Ottoman architectural style. It is therefore suggested that this arch might have belonged to another building -possibly a monastery- which used to be at the same site.

The building has been constructed with a rectangular design; it has two storeysand no mosque. The travellers would stay in the rooms on the upper floor and their animals and belongings would be kept in the rooms on the ground floor.
