It would be a nice thing to visit a place that took 7 years to build by the support of all the Moroccan I like the architecture, the Hammas, the way of integrating the loudspeakrs at the mosque, I recommend it

I loved Hassan II Mosque's extremely detailed architecture. The surroundings were rather peaceful and serene which allows you to have a slow stroll around the area. I would recommend a guide for this one as it will allow you to understand more about the nature of this beautiful place. This is definitely worth a stop on your Morocco itinerary. Having... More

It was huge and looked nice. Locals at least said it's the second biggest mosque in the world after Mecca. Walking there from old Medina or beach places is quite nice and not too long. you can't go in if you are not Muslim.

It was a great opportunity for a non-Muslim to see inside a mosque. The guide explained the important elements inside the building and how they linked to Islam teachings. The tour was quite rushed but got good information if you kept up with the guide.

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!
