The Muradie Mosque (Albanian: Xhamia e Muradies) or Lead Mosque (Xhamia e Plumbit) is a Cultural Monument of Albania, located in Vlorë. The mosque was built in 1537 by the famous Ottoman Turkish architect Mimar Sinan during the rulership of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.

The mosque is located in downtown Vlora on a central square, surrounded on all four sides with roads. It is located on west of Sadik Zotaj, south of Lef Sallata and east of Papa Kristo Negovani streets.

The structure consists of the main building and the minaret. The former is about 10 to 11 square meters while the minaret has a length of 18 metres. In the past, it also had a portico which has been destroyed later. The mosque has a dome with a supporting polygon raised base, arched windows and classical triangular forms topping the side walls. The brick work of the Muradie mosque has layers with two different brick colors. There is also a contrast between the texture, quality, color, as well as size and sequence of the bricks used to build the Islamic prayer hall compared with the larger white chiseled stones used to build the minaret.
