Grand mosque

Constantine is graced with several other beautiful mosques, but these, as all others, are only open to Muslims.

The oldest, and one of the most visible, is the the grand mosque (rue Larbi ben M’Hidi). 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 re- built over the centuries and has a modern façade, the interior has retained some of its original features, including some pillars and Corinthian capitals brought from Hippo Regius.
