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

Yet another great place to visit in Granada. The danger here is that there are so many wonderful places to visit you become blasé about them. This is another example of a wonderful, historical building. A must for any visitor.

Located in a wonderful spot ( near san Nicolas ) this Masjid is simply amazing ! You enter directly into the outside yard that has a wonderful view of Al-Hambra and its calm and a good place to relax. Inside the Masjid is built in an old Andalusian style and the Mihrab is like the Mihrab of the great Masjid... More

La Mezquita is a really cool place to visit, especially if history and/or religion interest you. Most mosques were burned down after the Spanish Inquisition in the 1400s. For some reason, this mosque was spared and it is worth a visit. Just beware of pickpockets that linger around the mosque!

It reminds us that there have always been troubled times and that there does not always have to be a clash of cultures and that there is room for some harmony. It is a restful place; a certain understated elegance in the Islamic influence mixed with some glorious celebration of the pious Christian saints. Overall a place to go and... More

Another must see historical place to visit. A mix and cross culture of two religions heritage between the the muslims and christians. A lot of of historical facts can be understood going through the tour and visit of this specific place.

The garden is quiet and offers a great view at the Alhambra at the opposite hill. The inside of the mosque is as usual.
