It's my second time in Marrakech and the mosque is a godsend (if you'll pardon the pun) as a landmark for the main square (and airport pick up point).
All this talk about not being allowed in due to Moroccan laws is nonsense - I've just come from Casablanca and the third largest mosque (Hassan II) in the world welcomes everyone. I'm guessing it is a size and numbers thing. The one in Casablanca is four times the size and there are a tenth of the numbers of tourists.
