As with most of the ports around the Mediterranean, where we were greeted by throngs of taxi drivers, offering private... More

Casablanca, dirty one day, filthy the next and redeemed only by this stupendous mosque. Built in the late 20th century and a testament to modernity, it boasts an enormous retractable roof and a hidden sound system and cost some $750 million to build. Entry is by guided tour only - MAD 120 - and worth every dirham. Photography is allowed;... More

Great place to take a friend that is visiting Casablanca. Amazing Mosque, it is better to go during the visiting hours so that the visitors that are not muslim can enter the mosque.

I loved this mosque at first sight. It is so beautiful you cannot understand unless you are facing it! Appreciate it, take a lot of pictures and make the inside tour. Worth it!

The mosque is very beautiful, with exquisite tiles, wood, and Italian marble. You need to cover your head no shorts. I think you have to have a local guide to go in. You can see the Atlantic Ocean through the windows. This mosque can hold 25,000 worshiper inside and 100,000 outside.
