Hassan II Mosque is huge. It's beautiful inside and out, with delieghtful clean lines and detailed mosaics and tiles. The underground area for ritual ablutions was particualry interesting. The only flipside was that the place was full of tourists, just like me. I imagine that it would be lovely to wander about in semi-solitude.

This occurred when the sliding roof was covered in Polish... More

Our first visit to Casablanca (via Thomson Dream cruise) and we were not disappointed. The city is in the state of modernisation and they are doing a good job of it! Cleanliness is the moto and everywhere is being cleaned and updated. The Mosque is simply stunning and beautifully kept. The intricate mosaic designs are fantastic and we felt completely... More

Gigantic... Very impressive. Maybe one of the biggest mosques I visited. The carpet is very soft. You can simply lay down and take a nap there. Impressive building. Must see location.

We travelled here from Marrakech do check out the times if you want to go on tour as we found the last one was at 12noon and then the next one was not until 3pm. Still a lot to see without going inside though

It's the biggest Mosque in Africa and the 3rd biggest in the world and it does not disappoint. The Mosque is amazing and breathtaking both from the outside and the inside. It's definitely the biggest asset of Casablanca (from a touristic perspective) but that is the reason it was actually built for.

There is not much to see in Casablanca, I liked it the least on my journey but this mosque is extremely beautiful and you should see it if you are in Marocco. Be careful: might be closed during Ramadan. I've been there as well on the last day of Ramadan while a lot of people were praying.
