Beautifull Mosq. Not sure wether you can visit it inside. Freshly cleaned up on the outside. You can go for a walk on the Corniche although by the end of the Cornish it gets really dirty with a lot of garbage lying around. Having said that it is worth continuing the walk towards the lighthouse!!!

Built by national subscription, this is the largest mosque in Morocco. It holds 25,000 worshipers (including 5,000 women upstairs). Except for glass and marble imported from Italy, everything is was built from local materials. The tile mosaics and wood carvings are exceptional. The roof is retractable and according to our guide, can be opened in three minutes and closed in... More

We visited Casablanca for one day on a cruise. The mosque is pretty much the main attraction for any visitor to the city. I wasn't sure what to expect. However, I'm so glad we made the effort to make the trip. A very impressive building in it own right, and our very knowledgable local guide explained in detail a normal... More

We didn't go in as we arrived at Sunset. The photos at this time where amazing. I believe you can go in with a tour during day and if we had time this would be been great to do. Still its an impressive building and worth a look.

I went without many expectations, and it was nice. But beyond that, there was not much to do. I'd say if you're there for a few days to take a moment, and visit. If you're only there for a limited time, though, and scenery's not really your vice, carry on.

I visited the Mosque in the evening when all the lights where on. unluckily there are only guided visits in the morning. Non Muslims are not allowed to enter by themselves. this may disturb the praying people inside. This Mosque is huge and a guided tour will probably will be much more impressive than to look from outside.

It is as big as I could not imagin. If you are in Casa you have to see it, but to see how it looks inside you have to go with boring guide.

We were befriended by a young moslem woman who showed us around. The mosques location is very special, the colour scheme peaceful and there was an air of respect, calm and something very special.
