AL-BARTASE Mosques: from Mamlūk period; The 'Bortasi' mosque commissioned by 'Isa ben Omar alBortasi' in 1310 CE. It is one of the most beautiful Mameluke mosques with some motifs in the sanctuary (mihrab), Fatimid motifs in the engravings above the portal, and Moorish motifs in the splendid minaret that stands firmly on an empty half-arch despite its length and weight.
