The Virgin Mary of the Crusaders (Crosecchieri) on what is now Markou Moussourou St. was part of the Latin rite Capuchin Monastery. The church was surrounded by monastery buildings and guest rooms for pilgrims and visitors on their way to the Holy Land.

In the Ottoman period the church was converted into the Agebut Pasha or Kuchuakli Mosque, the second name being derived from the large number of galleries. The minaret survived intact up until World War II. The church has now been restored.
