Islamic Center of Geneva

The Centre Islamique de Genève (Islamic Center of Geneva) is also known as "the Little Mosque" of Geneva. It is the oldest Islamic center in Europe, founded by the Egyptian Said Ramadan in 1965.

The Center occupies a small whitewashed house with green shutters, close to Lake Geneva in the Les Eaux-Vives neighborhood. The largest room on the lower level of the house has been converted into a mosque.

Next to the mosque is a classroom used for Arabic and Islamic lessons and for conferences, which are held on Saturday evenings. The conferences cover a variety of subjects and are open to the public. The center also has an Islamic bookstore.
