Fodor's Expert Review La Grande Mosquée de Paris

The Latin Quarter Mosque

This awe-inspiring white mosque, built between 1922 and 1926, has tranquil arcades and a minaret decorated in the style of Moorish Spain. Enjoy sweet mint tea and an exotic pastry in the charming courtyard tea salon or tuck into some couscous in the restaurant. Prayer rooms are not open to sightseers, but there are inexpensive—and quite rustic—hammams, or Turkish steam baths, with scrubs and massages offered to women and men on separate days (check website for times and prices).
