Main Sights – Marbella Mosque

beautiful Arabian temple overlooks the golden

This beautiful Arabian temple overlooks the golden mile just to the west of the city centre (towards San Pedro). It was the first Mosque constructed after the Christian re-conquest and subsequent expulsion of the Moors from Spain in the fifteenth century. It was built by Prince Salman of Saudi Arabia. It is a beautiful example of modern Andalucian architecture, and is an impressive example of the juxtaposition of cultures in Andalucia.

The mosque contains a library which houses a collection of 30,000 volumes, focusing on Koranic studies. There are beautiful iconic gardens surrounding the Mosque which can be seen when driving on the highway N-340.
