The Lapidary Museum

The Lapidary Museum to the east of the Selimiye Mosque is a Venetian style building constructed in the 15th century.

It houses many works of stone (insignias, works of marble, tombs and columns) from the Medieval Age to the present day.

The splendid window with tracery opposite the entrance has been transported from the Lusignan Palace at Sarayonu Square which was demolished in the British period.
