Grand Mosque

Mosque in Constantine

The oldest mosque in the city is the Grand Mosque. Built in the 13th century on the site of a pagan temple, it was intended, as the Friday mosque, to hold most of the city’s population. Although it has been rebuilt over the centuries and has a modern facade, the interior has retained some of its original features, including some pillars and Corinthian capitals. It was closed for renovations at the time of research.
