While I understand this mosque is very significant to the Muslims of Granada, we couldn't enter it (and I respect that). All I can do is review the very peaceful gardens and surrounds of the mosque and the stunning view we got of Alhambra.

We stumbled upon the mosque by accident, I didn't know it was there but at maghrib time I followed the sound of the call to prayer and found it. It is beautiful, a architectural feast with beautiful Islamic art throughout.
