Most of today's castle of Ioannina was built during Turkish rule and within it there are older, Byzantine buildings. Inside the castle there are two acropolis. In the north-east Acropolis the Royal estates of the Byzantine sovereigns were built. Today at the top, Aslan Pasha's mosque dominates (1618).
The Second Acropolis, to the south-east is known as Its-Kale,meaning interior fortress.
