In an underdeveloped city, with not many attractions, it may be considered a must see. A city and country where a mosque is more a tourist site rather than to whisper with the Creator. The beach water is good for swimming only in the summers. Afterwards it becomes pretty cold. People rather move to El Jadida for the hot waters.... More

This is pretty much the only attraction in Casablanca so if you visit here then you should really visit this mosque. We were told on the tour it is the 3rd largest in the world- the other 2 being in Saudi Arabia. The tour cost around £8-9 each for approx an hour long tour. It seemed pretty rushed with the... More

Well, we had a whirly gig of a time getting here, but here we are. The flight from Los Angeles to Istanbul went quickly even though it clocked in at over 13 hours, and having to spend an overnight in Istanbul is not too hateful in its own right. It was a little depressing though getting right back on a... More

This mosque is absolutely breathtaking! I can't imagine another mosque being built in such a perfect location. First off it is at the very edge of Casablanca, which means it looks out onto the beaches and waters of the Atlantic. The area is so bright because it gets ample sun, making it the perfect place for photo ops. The inside... More

It is a great way to learn about the Muslim religion. The Mosque is amazing. The size of the interiors and the huge quantity of tiny details. The price is a bit high, 120 MAD, but it includes a guided tour inside and a visit to the Hmam. Don't miss it!

The mosque is very impressive in both size and beauty. Tours are available at 9, 10 and 11 AM, and are in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. This is a must-see in Casablanca.
