Description

Like a mirage, the Missiri Mosque rises up in the Fréjus landscape , bursting with ochre, breaking into the azur blue sky. Unusual monument that is unique in France, it is faithful to the architecture of the mosques in West Africa. But it is a mosque in name only: it was more a reception and meeting place which, for a while, gave the Senegalese riflemen that landed in 1917, the cordial atmosphere of the country which they had left.
