Neighbourhoods
Areas in Megalo Kastro usually took their official names from the nearest mosque, in a manner similar to earlier Christian parishes. For instance, the neighbourhood surrounding the church of St. Titus, which had since become the Vezir Mosque, was named Vezir Camici. Names for some other areas in the town related not to religious foundations, but to some distinctive feature or activity taking place there: the Jesus Gate was renamed Yeni Kapi (New Gate), while the St. Andrew Bastion became Kizil Tabya (Red Bastion).
