On the left one sees the Ekmekcizade Ahmet Paşa medresesi, built some time before his death by a son of an Edirne baker, who rose to the rank of Defterdar (First Lord of the Treasury) and Vezir, and died one of the richest men ikn the empire (in 1618). The medrese was closed. In the distance we see a mosque that was very ancient, but so heavily restored I do not think it kept its original flavour.
