Hassan Tower is a must-see place even though it is currently being restored. The grounds of an unfinished mosque ... the walls and columns allow you to understand the scope and size of the planned building. The tower itself would have been the minaret and is a beautiful building which has stood for 8 centuries. The grounds overlook the Atlantic... More

The fragmentary & symmetrical site is opposite the modern Mausoleum of Mohammed V which with its grand interiors, adds to the magic of the complex. The entry to the complex... More

According to some travellers the Hassan Tower used to be the tallest building in Africa. At present it is in scaffolding and not open to the public. The Tower and Mausoleum are on the same site so you can easily go from one to the other. The unfinished Mosque is impressive covering a huge area.

Construction ceased after 4 years in 1199 due to the death of the Sultan Yacub al-Mansour for whom it was intended. The tower is currently under refurbishment and restoration. It was intended to be the largest minaret in... More

A short stop if you have an hour in Rabat. The soldiers on horses were always a favorite of my sons.

You will need to know something of the history of this site in order to appreciate it. The tower is only partially built, never completed.

Besides the beautiful architecture and the guards in their great costumes on the horses in front of the entrances what is so interesting is that the faults Earth Tech tonics is the same as the one for Portugal and in 1758 the great earthquake of Lisbon affected this beautiful structure and many along its path .
