It's big.... 3rd largest in the world and the only Mosque in Morocco to non Muslims. Only about 20 years old and built over the water. I think all groups are required to have a tour guide and they are very excited to show you this Mosque. I think it has room to accomodate up to 80,000 for worship. Interesting... More

The mosque is a beautiful and inspiring place. We visited on a day trip we took to Casablanca from Marrakech. Beware it's near a beach where some of the local characters are quite rough. We had a police officer kindly tell us not to go in for our own safety.

This was a unique experience as this is one of the two mosuqes I think open to public. The architecture was wonderful; the courtyard amazing and most of all the cleanliness of the place is beyond belief for accommodating so many worshippers. The guide was quite fluent and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Blvd Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah, the biggest in Morocco and the second in the world! It's a combination of traditional religious culture and modern constructional style. I love the architect and it's mystery. What impressed me most is that the Masjid is just close to the sea! It is sooooo beautiful that must be recommended to everyone who visits Casablanca.... More

Really spectacular. This is the reason to visit Casablanca. I would call it the don't-miss element of a city that could otherwise be a nondescript European city.

Beautiful mosque on the coast. If you coming from the centre (or port) better to use taxi. All white and green with tower up in the clouds. Entry fee is quite expensive but it's worth just to come and see it from close.
