Visit the Paris Mosque and immerse yourself in an oriental atmosphere in the heart of Paris.
Too often, the Paris Mosque is summed up in its famous hammam and tea room, which extends the comfort after the steam baths. However, this Hispano-Moorish style place of worship, built in the heart of the Latin Quarter after the First World War, also has sumptuous patios and remarkable prayer rooms.
33-metre high minaret, high columns, mosaics, large hand-sculpted cedar dome, giant chandelier and valuable carpets... all the oriental architecture and ancestral techniques give this monument a unique atmosphere of peace.
Inside the main courtyard, let yourself be charmed by the Andalusian garden with its water fountains, waterfalls, fountains and marble pools. Then discover the Grand Patio, whose entrance door, decorated with kufic characters reproducing verses from the Koran, is a jewel of Moroccan art.
Finish with a short tour in the souk where earthenware, brass and coloured fabrics await you. Whether Muslim or not, visitors are welcomed with equal attention by guides who answer all questions.
Every day throughout the year between 9 am and 6 pm. Closed on Friday. Self-guided or guided tours take place every day except Fridays and Muslim celebrations.
