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

Beautiful building and tranquil gardens with the most famous view in the city.Open to visitors and if you have never visited a mosque before well worth it to learn about Islam and admire the view.

A new mosque built in the style of old Moorish Granada - and i think was commissioned by the ruler of Sharjah UAE - the mosque is really beautiful built on the hills in the neighborhood of San Nicolas - you have amazing views of the al Hamra with the snow capped mountains behind them... a must visit for everyone...

We went to the Granada Masjid in the evening of 9th October, 2014. The view from the Garden of Masjid to Alhambra is out of this world. In the night time the light up Alhambra Palace looks astonishing and breathtaking. Again we visited the Granada Masjid on Friday 10th October, 2014 to offer JUMA Prayer. That was an unbelievable experience... More
