“Great landmark”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

There are a few mosques in the area, but this one is distinctive enough that it is a great landmark. Watching out for it helps to determinewhere you are!

“Quite pretty from the outside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Looks nice from the outside, but would have been good to see inside. I'm not sure what the problem with mosques and non-muslims is in Morocco - I have visited mosques in other countries (e.g India) and there was never any problem with it. The gardens behind the building are quite nice but nothing to write home about.

“Mosque”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The mosque was nice from the outside but was not able to go into it as they would shut down after prayer times.

“Impressive and imposing structure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

It would be great to be able to see inside the mosque to 'feel' the spirit of Islam that is all around.

“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

You can't miss it, and it is nicely lit up at night. We couldn't go inside but it has an interesting history.
