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.
