This is an impressive landmark in the heart of Marrakech. If you are ever lost just look up and hopefully you will be able to see the top of the Minaret.

Amazing Mosque, had really high ceilings with a traditional look from the inside. The tall Minaret is beautiful and helps whenever you are lost, all you have to do is walk towards it and you'll never be lost

As others have indicated - this is not open to non Muslims. However it's a beautiful building in a lovely setting - plus when you get lost you can use the minaret as a locationing centre. Water carriers ply for photograph trade here.

Not much do but admire this old beautiful mosque. Not sure if was allowed inside to view but many locals went in to pray. Azaan was said. Larger minaret. Has no dome like the newer mosques.

We stumbled across this mosque and it's in a beautiful setting. There are gardens around and lots of benches to relax on. If you're nearby I would definitely recommend stopping to have a look.
