The Ibrahim-Al-Ibrahim Mosque stands as the southernmost mosque in all of Europe. Perched on Europa Point, the mosque is an architectural marvel and pays homage to Gibraltar’s long Muslim heritage. Visit the mosque to admire the incredible decoration, the opulence and the breathtaking location facing the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
The mosque was a gift to Gibraltar from the late King Fahd Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia. It opened in 1997 to great fanfare, with many top members of the Saudi royal family in attendance. The mosque is now seen as a symbol of Gibraltar’s long Islamic past and a hub for its present Muslim residents. Soak up the tranquility of the area around the mosque.
Notice the beautiful blending of architectural styles in the mosque. Classic Islamic architecture can be seen in the decorative tilework. This is combined with Byzantine features and a truly modern silhouette. The mosque, which cost in the region of £5 million ($6.5 million) to construct, is one of the largest in a non-Muslim country and covers a whopping 10,602 square feet (985 square meters).
Wander around the serene place of worship and examine the intricate details. Among the standout features are solid brass chandeliers, which were made in Egypt; wooden doors made of sturdy teak; the slender 233-feet (71-meter) high minaret; and the mosaic tile-covered dome. The main prayer hall measures 5,167 square feet (480 square meters) and can cater to hundreds of worshippers in comfort and air conditioning. In addition, the mosque contains the Imam’s house, classrooms, a conference hall, library, kitchen and even a morgue.
From the town center, buses make their way up to Europa Point every 15 minutes from where you can alight to see the grand Ibrahim-Al-Ibrahim Mosque. Entry is granted at differing times to visitors so check ahead. Please remember to dress modestly; women must have their arms, legs and heads covered. The mosque stands on a flat area of Europa Point, and is adjacent to not only the lighthouse but also the Our Lady of Europa Chapel.
