I think that you can feel the atmosphere in this place. What a history and a gorgeous place inside and out day or night. I love to get up for early morning when you can get in for free for an hour. Beats the crowds!

I left the crowded and noisy Mirador de San Nicolás and found this wonderful Mezquita where I sat in it's quaint gardens and was able to see the incredible view of Granada.

we could not visit the mosque since we were not part of a group but wandering in the gardens is really worth it. The view on the Alhambra really is gorgeous and the atmosphere much quieter than at the mirador San Nicolas. I had a feeling of time traveling since you can perfectly imagine yourself during in this gardens a... More

It was a small mosque, smaller than I had anticipated for a city that use to have strong Islamic history. But when you enter the mosque, the stillness, serenity will overpower you. I felt calm and happy. Blessed to be here. The view of Alhambra from the mosque is beautiful. Come here for a less interrupted view of the Alhambra... More

It really doesn't matter what your religious leanings are I defy anyone not to find this place uplifting. The architecture is stunning, perfectly preserved and maintained. Don't miss it when you are in Granada.

Find the signage towards San Nicolas Church and the Mezquita is just around the corner slightly above it. Wear good hiking shoes and be prepared to travel light. The Moroccan restaurant behind the mezquita would keep you warm with some mint tea
