Mind the timings

Nice mosque but they should do a better job of opening it for the tourist if they want it to be counted as a tourist attraction. The timings to see this are very limited.

One of largest Muslim community outside Middle East, this beautiful mosque is open to visitors of any religion. Obviously, it is not so beautiful or rich as other mosques in Turkey or Lebanon, but the essence to spirituality is preserved. All built in white, with blue carpets inside, candelabros, several people go there to pray or keep in touch with... More

This place takes you far from being in Latin America to the Middle East where you see a Mosque everywhere. There you can listen to the basics of Islam in the simplest way and get more knowledge about true Islam. And for muslims, it is working and you can pray there every prayer.

Seems nice place inside, unfortunately when I got there was closed for refit. So I only could get a picture from outside. The neighborhood looks all of Muslim but I'm. Not sure nice area anyway.

You can visit (because the entrance does not cost money and just if you never saw a mosque in your life), but it is certainly not a 'necessary activity'. Nothing really to see there.

Our cab driver who took us to Ciuded del Este, Paraguay stopped here on the way back to our Pousada. It is gated and there is a guard who stops people from entering the grounds.

All respect to the Muslim community at Foz mosque. Certainly they are people of faith and spiritual objectives. Kind and tender reception are some of their virtues.

If you're are looking to know a little about the religion and their monuments go somewhere else. This is a pretty little mosk but nothing surprising.
