This is the Central Mosque in Paris with a 33 meter high minaret that is hard to miss.  The Paris Mosque epitomizes Moorish style and architecture.  There is a tearoom (good tea & pastries) and traditional Turkish-style bathhouse on site and is worth a visit if you happened to be in the Latin Quartier.

Tip: You must be modestly dressed and remove your shoes if you want to enter the prayer hall.  Be sure to respect this worship space.
