Madrid Halal

Madrid was founded in the mid-9th century (between 853 and 865) by Muhammad I, Emir of Cordoba, as a military settlement, and it remained under Muslim rule until it was conquered by King Alfonso VI of Castile in 1085. From those centuries, we can still find remains of the original walls, in addition to some remains scattered around the vicinity of the Almudena Cathedral and Plaza de Oriente.

Finally, in 1992, the Saudi monarch and Juan Carlos I inaugurated the mosque.
