    Kastamonu’nun şehre hakim tepesinde konumlanmış eşsiz bir kültür mirasıdır. Türk ve islam Sanatları Tarihi sürecinde mühim yer tutar.

    Çok iyi korunmuş tarihi bir camii. Kaleye çok yakın. Alt tarafında çekme hekva yapan bir işletme var. Helvaları güzel. Bahçede ayrıca yöresel kumaş baskı işleri yapan dükkanlar var.

    Yakup Ağa Camii 1547 yılında Kanuni Sultan Süleyman ın kilerci başısı Yakup Ağa tarafından yaptırılmış. Külliyenin ya da caminin bahçesinde dinlenebilir, çay içebilirsiniz. Külliyenin içersinde yapılan kastamonu çekme helvası da çok güzel.
