The garden of the Grand Mosquée de Paris is a beautiful and peaceful place at any time of year but its colonnaded walkways are particularly attractive on a hot summer’s day.

Lovely photos. This mosque really looks like the Alhambra in Granada. You are lucky to have this beauty so nearby!

Thank you for your comment. The Paris mosque complex only dates to the 1920s but its design is said to have been inspired by the ancient Al Quaraouiyine mosque in Fès. I guess that could have inspired the Alhambra too.

A wonderful reminder of an enchanting visit…. And the fragrance in the library was divine, too…

I haven’t found a way of capturing scents on the blog yet, except in words!

Oh yes, I’ve enjoyed these and would gladly see more. The fountain is amazing!

I was wary of taking too many general photos, to avoid disturbing other visitors – hence the close up details. I must go back on a cold autumn Monday morning!
