3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Non-Muslims are not allowed to visit, but you can see the architecture up close. This is an iconic landmark in Marrakech.

“Tall and beautiful.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The mosque is the tallest building in Marrakech and can be seen from most places. The history is interesting, but its best to have a tour guide with you that will tell the story. You cannot go into the mosque unless you are a muslim so i cannot say what it looks like from the inside. It opens up half an hour before praying time and that is when it is very busy. It is well worth a visit though to see what is Marrakech's most important landmark.

“Seen almost from everywhere in Marrakech ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

Ok, worth to visit just because is the icon of Marrakech. In the centre of a nice garden almost separate the old and the new city. You will see it almost everyday because the tall minares is recognized from everywhere! Also beautiful in night.

“The likes of me are not allowed in.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Seeing as I'm not a muslim and not allowed in, I do not consider this to be a tourist attraction! It's a shame, as I love Moorish architecture and enjoy learning about other faiths. Rules are rules though...
