“the icon of Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Love the minaret. It is also an ideal guide to help you locate yourself when in Marrakech.
I did not get to go in, I would have loved to visit the mosque

“Visible from most places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Set in lovely gardens and listening to the 'calling to prayer' is quite haunting. Only disappointment is that you cannot enter

“koutoubia”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

It is just ok and not available to non muslims. They discriminate against ppl in this way. You are however, able to look inside.

“Beautiful sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Lovely minaret, visible from everywhere and useful for getting your bearings. Nice gardens all around and a cleaner and less frenetic part of the city

A lovely mosque, we didnt go inside but there are grounds around the mosque. its right next to the main square so it soon became a familiar sight for us.
