I'm from Turkey and I saw a lot of Mosques but this one was really special, like the old elements and thinking about the fact that everything was done by hand, just one word: Amazing!!

The architecture of the building is impressive and inside in the main circle is wonderful, the museum is limited however you can go go down and be inside the Alhambra from the museum, it is worth it if you have extra time to spend.
