Beautiful place to visit. The hours are a little constrained since they closed at 7pm, but we made it the next day and enjoyed our visit.

This Mosque has influences from the Alhambra (especially inside) and is a very tranquil experience to visit this place. The view of the Alhambra during day, night, evening, sunset and sunrise is breathtaking.

This is a lovely, peaceful (relatively, depending on numbers of tourists!) mosque with a great garden view of the Alhambra. It is just beside the Mirador San Nicolas so you can easily go to both.

Really pleasant and peaceful garden situated at the front of the mosque which hosts a magnificent view of the Alhambra. the garden area serves as a very pleasant space for some quite time and reflection. First purpose built mosque in Granada since 1492, and although a modern construction it has a strong hint of Islamic/Moorish architecture. worth seeing, although the... More

Located next to the Mirador de San Nicolas, with excellent views especially of the Alhambra, from both inside and the outside courtyard. Very friendly caretaker allowed us to take a look inside. Small gift shop with some unique items like cards and bookmarks. The harmonious collection of beautiful churches, modern mosques, and magnificent palaces in a nicely and respectfully preserved...

For Muslims, I recommend you to visit this mesquita mayor. Do your salat sunah there, and enjoy the bonus of its beautiful garden with Alhambra view as the background. Next to this mesquita, you can also visit San Nicholas mirador.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to visit this Masjid (aka Mosque) which is just next door to the Mirador de San Nicolas. We actually prayed here in the evening just after sunset with the locals, and we felt privileged to do so. The Mosque has a beautiful patio with a fantastic view of the Alhambra. This is a... More

We arrived just before closing and got to see the beautiful gardens and the outside of the mosque. It's beautiful architecture the people are friendly and peaceful atmosphere as opposed to all the people and noise waiting to see the Alhambra in the setting sun.
