The Orta Mosque was built in 1614 AD on the foundations of a church dating from the 11-12th century.

This church burnt down in the 13th century, and a necropolis was built on the same place which was used from the Middle Ages up until 17th century.

The model that can be seen on the pictures shows how the mosque is located with respect to the old church.

The Orta Mosque was closed, and I am not sure if you can still see the underlying church from the inside of the mosque, although I have seen pictures of it.
