This imposing monument can be seen from almost any spot in Rabat and is particularly impressive at night. This is all part of the masoleum grounds so you can't miss it.

Yes, the tower and columns are not visually spectacular but listen to your guide or read up on the history of the tower and Mohammed V mausoleum before you go so you can appreciate what this place is all about. Great views of surrounding area from vantage point and intricate detail on all walls etc in Mausoleum. Maybe not a... More

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.
