Isaac Celebi Ibn Isa mosque was built in 1506, and it is one of the oldest protected mosques in Bitola. Across from the Clock Tower and the Big Bezisten (Covered Bazaar), this mosque with its almost 50-meter-high minaret, simply dominates the area. This Mosque used to be a part of a big vakaf (property) of the donor who in addition to this mosque built a madrasah, mectab, 103 stores, vineyards, 20 watermills and many other objects. All this property was supposed to be maintained by the income from his stores in the Bazaar, as well as from the incomes of the other parts of his property.
