Easy walk. Not to far and a small climb. Also easy for children and older people. The mosque is not really interesting but the view is great.

Can't get a better spot to have the full view of the blue city. Quite some walk so better start near sunset to avoid the heat. Bring water as not really any shops once you start climbing. A short rest at top is quite enjoyable.

It's a bit of a challenge for the elderly but I made it up at age 72. Stop and take in the views as you climb the paths and the steps. Go early before it gets too hot - well worth the effort!

Good gradual trek to the Mosque with stunning view all along the way of the "blue city" below. The view from the Mosque is well worth the climb. Met many interesting characters along the way.

This is worth the short hike up the hill. It has a beautiful view of the little town . I would recomend going to watch the sunset . lots of sheeps around the hills.

The mosque itself is not at all impressive-no one ever prayed in it, as locals built mosques in town claiming they don't want to be using a Spanish mosque built for them. However, it's a quick walk up -around 30 mins- but it's totally worth...More

We had missed the sunset from the Spanish Mosque, so we went for the sunrise instead. The hike up to the mosque was almost as enjoyable as the view from the top. Very relaxing and a gorgeous place to see the city!

Lovely walk and great view. This would rate 5 stars if not for the annoying locals. It seems like every review I write boils down to the locals ruining every tourist attraction. There seems to be very little appreciation for the benefits and money tourism...More
