A must to see when in town. The amount of money spend building this would never be possible in a normal democratic rich country. Outstanding arkitecture and view.

Huge, spacious, marvelous… just stunning! Impressive outside, but inside is even more! Fantastic job with marble, wood, gorgeous mosaics… they cover the whole floor with carpet only for prayer time and special occasions and in other time as a non-Muslim you will have the pleasure to enjoy of the floor and reflection of the lights. Magnificent interior and to see... More

What a beautiful mosque!!!! Almost sitting in the Atlantic Ocean, it's the most exciting attraction in Casablanca. They run daily tours (check with your hotel for times) and if you're a student, make sure you say so as you can get a half price discount! The tour guide explained everything clearly and succinctly. And photos are allowed inside, but not... More

The only mosque we visited in Morocco. Extremely big and quite amazing from an architectural point of view. Not quite a national necessity from a financial point of view considering that some areas (such as the Hammam) were built just to show visitors and tourists. Interesting and friendly guided tours!

Largest minaret on any mosque in the world; built on a very prominent position by the sea, just to the north of the Medina in Casablanca. There are guided tours available; these are given in a number of languages. They are not cheap, however: MAD110 per person. The scale of the building, and its surrounds, are amazing. Well worth a...

I arrived in Casablanca that day and had not caught up with my tour group yet and decided to catch a petit cab to the mosque. 20dh, not terrible but I would recommend using the meter and not taking no for an answer! The grounds are immense and breathtaking - considering about 80k people are there during the holy season... More

This is the 3rd biggest mosque World Wide and the biggest outside Saudi Arabia. It is also the tallest in the world. But what makes it really worth a visit if you are non muslim is it's location by the sea in front of the Atlantic.

During a cruise trip we vistied on 1 day Morocco Casablanca and Rabat. The Hassan II mosque by the sea is about the only event worth visiting in Casablanca. Be sure to check the visiting hours, because it is not always open, best visits our during prayer times.

We were going to explore Casablanca on our own, but decided at the last minute to go on a coach tour,and we were so glad we did, as we saw loads more than we would have done on our own. We set of and went past homes that can only be described as slums and then further on ,we came... More
