“Masjid with Alhambra view”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

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.

“Lovely Masjid with an incredible view of the Alhambra”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

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 lovely little Mosque with a lot of character.

“Nice Mosque and beautiful patio”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

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.

“Beautiful view, small, but lovely mosque garden”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

This little mosque is very inviting as it has a welcome sign that attracts visitors from Mirador San Nicolas. The patio is well-manicured and lovely with buds of all types springing forth and a fantastic, quiet view of the Alhambra. I stress QUIET as the crowd at the Mirador San Nicolas is quite loud if you want to take videos of the cityscape. It's much nicer to photograph and take videos from the mosque garden. The mosque itself is not ornate, but it is simple and lovely in its own right. The garden is the highlight with it's pretty blue fountain and blossoming plants.

“Interesting to see a modern Mosque”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

If you're interested in architecture, this is worth a visit, to compare a relatively modern design and how it harkens back to traditional Islamic/Moorish architecture. We didn't enter the Mosque but peeked through the open doors, as well as enjoying the gardens and the view.
