Mezquita Granadina

Granada - Andalucia - Albaicin - España - Mezquita Granadina

 

In July 2003 the first mosque opened since Granada fell to the Christian armies 512 years ago. This splendid new mosque, overlooking the reddish 14th century Alhambra and located in the Albaicín Quarter of Granada, has raised some Spanish eyebrows, but pleased others who are proud of the Muslim civilization the Arabs established in Spain.
