I thought the interior of the mausoleum was just beautiful and definitely worth a brief visit. The view of the tower makes a great photo op as do the guards on horseback at the entrances. Not a must-see, but if you are in the area, definitely worth a quick visit!

The Hassan tower is just that, a tower. There is not much to see. It sits in a courtyard of pillar bases. It is worth a stop for two reasons. There are mounted guards at the gateway to the courtyard; a good photo op. And the adjoining Mausoleum of Mohammed V is impressive.

This is the site of a half-completed mosque that was destroyed by an earthquake. Standing directly across from the Mausoleum this area offers a nice walk and lovely views. On the way inside the complex you pass between two guards on horseback in elaborate attire. Take a second and snap a picture.

This review is quite late. We visited the Hassan Tower after dusk. From the tower, the Atlantic Ocean is just around the corner. There is a big hotel nearby and a huge park where locals go for a leisurely walk. This is a favorite hang out for young people. You can spend an hour meeting local folks or just simply... More

It is a very excellent site, albeit somewhat daunting. It has been sitting there for so many centuries, still unfinished, but is still spectacular, even in this state.

Great architecture. It is only half the intended height as 44M and you can no longer climb it as it was being used to commit suicide and was closed.

in order to consider it as a landmark on a huge place. In combination with the Mausoleum of Mohammed V it is worth visiting.

Definitely not a must go site but if your guide happens to take you there it is well worth 30-60 minutes of time. There were men on horses outside who willingly (somewhat) posed for photos and the tower, the columns, and the mausoleum make for some interesting photos. If you miss this, no big deal, but worth a visit if... More
