Abstract

With the advent of Islam as a religion in Albania, Islamic architecture was developed in parallel with the events during that time. In the period when the centralization of the Turkish Empire had reached its peak, during fifteen and sixteen (XV-XVI) centuries, Ottoman art in Albania was very significant in religious buildings. The Islamic Architectural objects were similar to the Turkish models, creating a local physiognomy. On the other hand, in the seventeenth (XVII) century, local contribution to Islamic buildings in Albania became greater. In the late eighteenth century and early nineteenth (XVIII-XIX) century, the blending of Ottoman elements reached its peak with the appearance of a particular style of Albanian-Islamic Architecture. This style presents a synthesis of religious and secular elements such as Ottoman, Islamic, local and western.
