Mohammed Ali’s mansion, constructed around 1780, was the largest and most luxurious residence in the city of Kavala at that time. It is considered one of the most splendid extant examples of 18th century Ottoman architecture in Greece. The house, which receives thousands of visitors each year, acquired its own guide, written by the art historian Fani-Maria Tsigakou.
The book A Tour of the House of Mohammed Ali provides the reader with information about the architectural structure, use, history and significance of the monument, while awakening interest in the notorious personality of Mohammed Ali Pasha. Even those who have not passed the entrance of the mansion can learn its history and tour its rooms and gardens.
