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

We stumbled across this by accident and were wowed by it. The rooms are simply stunning and the entrance is only 2 euro. Definitely worth going

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

There is no charge to walk in and have a brief look around. However, if you want a little closer look you can pay two Euros and get more of a behind the scenes tour of the place. Worth checking out

Right round the corner from the cathedral and worth a look inside. Pay the small entrance fee to have a closer look around-the detail in the work is just stunning

Right opposite the Royal Tombs. Visit this as an elegant answer to the overegged marble Royal Tombs. Pay a couple of Euros to enter into the room and marvel at the elegant decorative beehive plasterwork. Upstairs is different European fare to be enjoyed. If you...More
