Religious Site Tourist Spot
The Central Mosque of Lisbon is the main mosque of Lisbon, Portugal, serving the capital city's Islamic community. The building was designed by architects António Maria Braga and João Paulo Conceição; its external features include a minaret and a dome. The mosque contains reception halls, a prayer hall and an auditorium. The Central Mosque has formed a council to provide financial and others services to needy members of the local Muslim community. Although permission to build the center was requested in 1966, it was not granted until 1978 after the 1973 oil crisis and the Arab oil-producing nations gained increasing economic and political status. The structure was finally inaugurated in 1985.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
