The Mezquita is a nice place to visit, but the views is what makes it worth the effort to get here. The views are just stunning

Lovely to visit and pray in the mosque- the gardens are beautiful and a quiet, serene place to capture amazing pics of Al-Hambra

Most beautiful place I've ever been. A must-visit if you want to go to Andalucia. Right across the Roman bridge of Cordoba and next to Alcazar Palace (King's Garden). Don't forget to go to the Royal Stables to the left of Alcazar Palace.

This mosque is right across from Plaza de San Nicolas and offers a quieter setting than the Plaza to view the Alhambra. Access to the mosque itself is restricted only to Muslims, so all non-believers can see is the outer portion. It is worth a quick visit if you are already at Plaza de San Nicolas, but otherwise not worth... More

The Mezquita of Granada is located up on the Albayzin, pretty close to the noisy San Nicholas overlook. In contrast, the Mezquita gardens are a quiet oasis with fantastic views of the Alhambra. The surrounding walls and trees filter the San Nicholas noise, and only the sound of the traditional fountains and the wind in the leaves remains. Really a... More

Really glad I got to visit this ancient Mosque. It's the very first Mosque in Granada, with a lot of friendly people up there running the place. Very historic inside and provides a breath-taking view of lower Granada. Highly recommended!

if you have any reason to be in Granada, you MUST see this place. It is the most amazing cross usage site of Muslim and Christian cultures. We have never seen anything like it.

its a mosque. just a mosque seems to be recently built to answer the need of Muslims for prayers. its unfair to compare it with historical attraction built by Muslims hundreds of years ago. still it a sign of tolerant Spanish culture and a desire of Muslims to build new relations with new Spain. entering the mosque is not difficult...
