Islamic Architecture

Al-Mursi Abul-Abbas Mosque

Abul-Abbas was a muslim scholar, originally from Murcia, Spain, which was then part of the Islamic Empire. He settled down in Alexandria and built the Mosque that carries his name today. The mosque was re-designed and rebuilt in the twentieth century, and illustrates the sophistication of Andalusian Islamic architecture.
