Our baby boy loves opera and ballet. Is it the singing or the music or a bit of both? While he's still too young to enjoy a full performance of Carmen or the Swan Lake, we thought we'd try touring the Opéra de Paris.
The Grande Mosquée was opened in 1926, close to the Jardin des Plantes (Botanical Garden) in the 5th arrondissement. It is built in Mudéjar (Hispanic-Moorish) style with elements from Moroccan and Tunisian mosques. Craftsmen from North Africa were in charge of designing the colourful enamel tiles and the intricate details on the timber doors.
