3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Mosque rises above city and it is great to find it in sight line to get your bearings if lost in the souks. Could not enter and hundreds were praying outside during Ramadan

“beautiful- great gardens too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Visited during Ramadan so saw the faithful called to prayer at sundown. Magically haunting.
Muslims are not allowed access butyou can take photos from the doorway.

“lovely architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Koutoubia Mosque has a long and interesting history and it is a pity if you don't take a look at the architecture of one of the most beautiful and unique mosque. The minaret is the central attraction. I recommend you to read a little bit of history regarding this mosque before seeing it.
