This mosque is right next to San Nicolas church. Mosque itself is not very big. One can visit the courtyard of the mosque. The best thing about this mosque is that one can view Alhambra from the small front yard in front of the mosque...More

It is worth to see an interesting example of a mosque and its garden in that area while walking around Albaicin.

The Mezquita is located next to the Mirador of San Nicholas, and consequently has amazing views of the Alhambra. While the andalusian style garden is open to all, the mosque itself is not open for tours. It's design is simple and beautiful.

The mosque's pleasant and peaceful front garden patio is open to the public and has the same views as the noisy, crowded, commercialized, pickpocket-infested "mirador" (overlook/vantage point) a few blocks away. This is an ideal point for taking pictures, and for resting your feet after...More

This is a beautiful new mosque. People visiting do need to realise it is an active local mosque so there will be times when you are not allowed in. Only those praying are allowed inside which is not easy to often decipher. The views are...More

I loved this place! Came back here several times during my stay in Granada. It is very calm and a guy who worked here was very friendly and helpful. It is a nice place to linger and enjoy.

I plan to visit the mosque and had thought to stay close by in order to hear the call to prayer. I recently heard that there is no voiced call to prayer - is this true?

Just a comment, by reading the reviews and seeing the photos, a lot of people are confused! This is NOT the Mezquita of Cordoba, it's a modern mosque in the Albaicin of Granada, not Cordoba.
