the mezquita is in the albayzin quarter, opposite the alhambra. there is a bus from the plaza nueva, but we walked up from the square up the narrow winding pathways towards the mosque and viewpoint.
muslim visitors will want to pray in the mosque, and the ablution facilities were welcome for cooling down after the climb on friday afternoon to get there for jumma prayers. the congregation seemed to be a mix of locals from little morocco, as well as a diverse group of tourists from many nations. the inside of the mosque is very tastefully decorated and in keeping with the local history and culture. the views from the mosque and the adjacent mirador are amazing and unrivalled from any other viewpoint.
there are ice-creams and drinks available from local shops. this and the mirador should be part of any trip to granada. it was a 20 minute climb in the beating afternoon sun, but well worth the trouble!

If you are visiting Mirador de san Nicolas and you want to avoid the busy square then see the views of Alhambra from the small lovely gardens. There is also a small cafe on site. The mosque gardens are open to general public. I wanted to pray and they were very friendly and pointed me where to perform the wudu and the Salah.

Next to San Nicholas Mirador, Mezquita Mayor de Granada has a beautiful garden with a white Mosque inside. Informational posters to read. I wish that I had felt more welcomed by the people in this lovely setting, but it was still a good experience. Beautiful views for photo opportunities. One vendor in the garden selling helados for 1.50 Euros each. The chocolate and raspberry were delicious.

This place has a beautiful garden and stunning views which is less crowded than san mirador right next door. It is a peaceful place to just sit. We actually stayed til sunset and did the congregatitional prayer. Theres a place for women to do ablusions and prayer. The ablusion facilities were so clean maybe the cleanest i have ever come across.

Such a beautiful mosque. Amazing views of alhambra palace. It was a quite a trek up with the little ones but well worth it.
There is a tranquility in this mosque felt as one walks through its well maintained courtyard. The mosque is open to enter for prayers for Muslims but not for tourists.
Please do dress modestly if you are visiting here.

well worth the climb through sacromonte to see this modern mosque with good atmosphere and beautiful interior. views are spectacular from the balcony here and the mirador just adjacent. drinks and ice cream available at local shops to cool down after the short climb through the myriad of narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses.
we went for jumma prayers - khutba in spanish and arabic. nice atmosphere and cosmopolitan congregation. fans and open windows rather than air con in main mosque. good wudu facilities - grateful to cool down at the same time as it is 40 degrees.

This is a beautiful mosque with a great view of the Alhambra. It’s particularly nice to see in the evening when the sun is setting. I also loved learning about the history of the mosque and all the struggles they went through to construct it. It’s an amazing story of perseverance.

The Great Mosque of Granada is an Islamic temple opened in 2003 in the city of Granada (Spain). This is the first built in Granada since 1492, after a hiatus of 500 years mosque.

The mosque has a Centre for Islamic Studies, which has a program of lectures, Arabic language classes, exhibitions and courses related to Islam and the Islamic legacy of Spain. Furthermore, there is a point of assistance to the needy and Muslims in general and a library with Spanish texts and audiovisual materials about Islam in Arabic, English.

It is located in the Plaza San Nicolás in the Albaicín.
