This prayer room is all that is left of the mosque school that once stood here. Sadly, the books were destroyed centuries ago. Upstairs there is a mudejar ceiling built shortly after the Reconquista of Granada. The ceiling is a mixture of mudejar, Gothic script,...More

There is a 'tour' but it is only in Spanish. The Madrasah has only two rooms worth visiting, a refurbished prayer room and another room with an interesting ceiling, which apparently is in the Mudéjar style. The architecture in the prayer room is very intricate...More

Didn’t pay to do the full visit but looked round the ground floor exhibits which included the timeline of Granada’s development. Highly educational and in English!! Loved it.

We nearly missed this and only spotted it by chance. Only small and will only take 20 minutes tops but well worth it for the immaculately preserved interior, which probably exceeds the Alhambra palaces in terms of beauty. I think it was €5 each but...More

When I was planning our vacation I marked this spot down thinking that there was a whole university filled with Moorish architecture. But it really is just a prayer room that remains. And while exquisite and worth the 2 euro to get in. It wasn't...More

What a wonderful little place right next to the Cathedral! The remnants of the Islamic madrasa or mosque school from 1349- only the prayer room survives. Whilst not huge, the detailing and workmanship is exquisite. Even my young son couldn’t stop marvelling at it’s beauty....More

This museum near the Cathedral is well worth a visit. There are some absolutely amazing decorative interiors showing the excellence of medieval Arab architecture. The Prayer Room is remarkably well preserved, and although some of the decorations have been restored, it is done faithfully according...More

Passed by this hidden gem along Calle Oficious, and surprised by the beautiful interior of the cultural center. Truly a must-see center in Granada. Too bad, visitors were not allowed to go upstairs. Looking up the staircase, the huge painting was an imposing piece. It...More
