Take a virtual tour of Masjid Quba, the first masjid built. Allah mentions it in the Quran:

لَّمَسْجِدٌ أُسِّسَ عَلَى التَّقْوَىٰ مِنْ أَوَّلِ يَوْمٍ أَحَقُّ أَن تَقُومَ فِيهِ ۚ فِيهِ رِجَالٌ يُحِبُّونَ أَن يَتَطَهَّرُوا ۚ وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الْمُطَّهِّرِينَ

“A masjid founded on righteousness from the first day is more worthy for you to stand in. Within it are men who love to purify themselves; and Allah loves those who purify themselves.” [9:108]

And Abdullah ibn Umer narrated, “The Prophet used to go to the masjid of Quba every Saturday (sometimes) walking and (sometimes) riding.” [Bukhari]
