The Hassan 2 mosque was built by the present King's father, who hired a French architect to design and build it. It was built on the spot where Moroccans used to swim on the beach and it now faces the Atlantic, where some young locals use its walls to dive into the Sea. They could clean-up the area as there...

This is really the only thing worth visiting in Casablanca. Even though the city is a dump, this place was amazing. Located on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the mosque is shiny and pristine, constructed from white marble that glowed in the sunlight. Surrounding the building are these massive metal door. Inside the prayer hall is filled with elaborate... More

This 600 million dollar mosque is beautiful. No offence to casablanca but this and the port are the only 2 things worth seeing. You have to see it as it holds 100,000 people. Very impressive the stonework i guess you would call it. A lot of marble in this place. Not like a catholic church at all. No angels or... More

If you find yourself with time on your hands in Casablanca (the least interesting city in Morocco) and you are into big mosques, visit Hassan II mosque. The scale is astounding and the decoration quite beautiful, but it is fairly new and to my mind the reason to visit Morocco is to immerse oneself in a bygone era. My advice:... More

The exterior and location of this grand Mosque are exquisite; a somewhat pricey 45 minute tour of the interior is the only way in; the guides are helpful and the tour is efficient. This is one of only two Mosques we were able to visit in Morocco and the other one is an unused shell of a Mosque. Don't miss... More

The third largest mosque in the world, this is a must see of Casablanca. The artistry is magnificent. There is an entrance fee but it includes a tour in english. Very nice.

This is the third biggest mosque in the world (7th according to wikipedia) and should not be missed. The architecture is just amazing taking into consideration that it has been built in modern times (80's). You need to join up for a guided visit for 12 euro and it's worth every cent. They have tours in the most common langages... More
