Milena Petkova Encheva

The present article is based on the information preserved in ottoman tax registers (taputahrir defters) – both detailed and synoptic, XVth–XVIIth centuries, documents preserved at the Oriental department at the National Library in Sofia, travelers’ accounts, ottoman chronicles and published memoires. It reveals the etnodemographic changes and the processes of colonization of Muslim population in one of the towns in Ottoman Rumelia–Eskihisar Zağra. It traces back the process of the organization of the urban space and the building of Muslim houses of worship in the town. The last part of the study reveals the economic profile of the settlement.
