Lovely! Very welcoming.. Prayed here and then watched the sun set over the Alhambra from the mosque gardens. Beautiful and a moment I will always cherish. You can bus it here from Granada centre (takes about 12-20mins) depending on traffic, or walk (takes 12mins approx)...More

This is a new mosque built in 2003. First one in Granada after almost 500 years. As most guys have pointed out the Alhambra views from the courtyard / garden area are breathtaking and as someone rightly pointed out much quieter than San Nicolas church....More

Came upon this mosque/masjid purely by chance as we were exploring Albaicin. I would say that the views from the yard of this mosque could well rank amongst the best in the world. Let me explain… As you walk through the gates you realise this...More

We prayed in this small mosque. It was very clean and tidy. There is no heating including the water in the toilets down below. Otherwise, I would highly recommend coming to pray here or visiting if you can.

When we walked around Plaza San Nicolas, we noticed this charming building, so went to have a closer look. It was a bit of a surprise to read that it is the Mayor Mezquita of Granada. In my mind, I imagined some more grandiose building....More

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.

This place is more than just mosque because first one has to understand the backdrop of Andalusia's Islamic history where muslims, who were ethnically Spanish, ruled Southern Spain for 781 years. The reconquesta or better know as the Spanish Inquisition was a 'genocide' that European...More

not really. You'll have to leave your car in one the very narrow alleys and walk to the Mosque.
