EDIRNE, TURKEY—Remains of the Yemişkapani Inn were uncovered in northwestern Turkey, near the Selimiye Mosque. Officials from the Edirne Municipality had planned to build office space, parks, pools, and entertainment areas at the site. Built in 1588, the inn later served as a fruit and vegetable market until it eventually collapsed in 1937.
