Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi Mosque

Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi Mosque is a historical mosque located in the city of Alexandria in northern Egypt. The mosque is attributed to Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi, a Sufi saint from Al-Andalus who died and was buried at the site in 1286 AD. In later years the tomb became a shrine where a small mosque was built in 1307. After that, it was completely rebuilt during the reign of King Fuad I, as it was designed by the Italian architect Mario Rossi. The mosque was inaugurated in 1945, during the reign of King Farouk.
