After showing most of NYC's mosques, many of them I will admit are nothing compared to the ones shown in the Mid East, but that's b/c the Muslims were one of the last groups to come to NYC and why most of the mosques are usually in the form of storefronts.

Spain has a lot of ancient mosques from the medieval age, like the Cordoba one (which is now the catholic cathedral).

Nowadays more than 1 million of muslims lives in Spain (the most of them morroquians). I think the most famous is the Mosque of Madrid

Mosque of Madrid (Centro Cultural Islamico, most known as M-30 Mosque)







Islamic culture in Spain was very important in the Medieval Age, specially in the south of Spain. So that, there are several buildings (generally churches) built following an islamic style, or with a lot of . This style is called "mozárabe" or "mudéjar"

For example the Church of Christ of the Victory, in Toledo (now a church, a former mosque until XII century)



Iglesia de San Lorenzo (St.Lorenzo Church) in Sahagún (León)


Torre de San Martín , Teruel (actually i think it's a part of a church, but i'm not sure)

The Islamic Cultural Centre in Ireland - Dublin.

It was built by Sh. Hamdan al-Maktoum of Dubai, and in addition to prayer halls, houses a school, library, restaurant, and shop. It is the centre for the European Fatwa Council.

An afghan mosque in Marree, central australia.

People from afghanistan emigrated to australia in the 1800s to drive camels across the desert as transport.

I think traditional Bosnian and Ottoman Mosques are the best looking

Modern mosques are just like modern churches - Horrible

This is IMO one of the most beautiful in Europe and the most beautiful in Germany.

The Red Mosque in Schwetzingen (Germany)

built between 1779-1791





1851

Ulu Cami, Divrigi

Ulu Cami, erzurum


I've just realised, these are nowhere near me. But I like Selcuk Mosques.
