This 15th century mosque is accessed through an impressive door opening to a short flight of steps and a large central court. There is a tree growing in the centre of this open court, presumably to offer shade to the Faithful. Islam is a congregational religion like the other two Semitic faiths of Christianity and Judaism, and such spaces are an essential feature of their places of worship.
