Your Gateway to Egypt
Abu Al-Abbas Al-Mursi is Alexandria's largest mosque; with a cream colored facade, four great domes, arabesque designs and a high minaret, the mosque is a beautiful sight.
Built in 1775 to commemorate the life of an Andalusian Sheikh that was buried on the site, it is one of the most visited mosques on the White Med coast.
While visiting this amazing sanctuary, do not forget to have a long and thorough look at the colonnade of elongated arches, the eight monolithic granite columns and the beautiful marble floor.
