Küçük Demir Inn

Following the first planned filling of the inner harbor, Küçük Demir Inn was constructed on the filled area in the late 17th century. It was located between Şadırvanaltı and Hisar Mosques. The Inn was in the traditional Ottoman inn style. Based on a square plan with a square courtyard in the middle, the inn had two entrances, one on the west and one on the east. The building had a lead covered dome roof and its exterior facade was surrounded with shops.

While the inn was constructed as a response to increasing cotton production and trade during the 17th century, today its authentic design has been mostly lost. Once serving long distance caravans to receive goods and to trade textile products, the inn is still involved in textile trade.
