The mosque's pleasant and peaceful front garden patio is open to the public and has the same views as the noisy, crowded, commercialized, pickpocket-infested "mirador" (overlook/vantage point) a few blocks away. This is an ideal point for taking pictures, and for resting your feet after climbing the steep hill and wandering around historic, charming back streets. As non-Muslims, we did... More

We were returning to our resort in Malaga after visiting Alhambra and were roaming around in the narrow lanes and stony paths of Granada to offer our Maghreb prayers we came across this mosque. Opened in the summer of 2003 this mosque is at the heart of the Muslim community and is not only a place of prayer, it is... More

This is a beautiful new mosque. People visiting do need to realise it is an active local mosque so there will be times when you are not allowed in. Only those praying are allowed inside which is not easy to often decipher. The views are beautiful as the mosque itself. It is small however and there is a cafe right... More

I loved this place! Came back here several times during my stay in Granada. It is very calm and a guy who worked here was very friendly and helpful. It is a nice place to linger and enjoy.

It is very interresting to see this Moschee included a church in the middle. You have short ways to reach it in the middle of the old town. Also the tower give us an good overview to the town.

Such a beautiful Mosque, although new, with gorgeous architectural detail and a stunning rose-filled courtyard with superb views of the Alhambra and the snow-capped Sierra Nevada peaks.

We ended up at the mosque in between our visit to the Alhambra and boy were we glad we did. It is located at the perfect spot overlooking the valley and the whole of the Alhambra complex across. The little water fountains and the mosque courtyard are a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of the narrow streets of... More
