It is so intriguing as to why the conquering Almohads destroyed all the mosques and minarets and other buildings of their rival the Almoravids in the 13th century and left this one building standing. But whatever the reason was, it is wonderful to see! Apparently, it is where one went to perform ablutions, ritual washing of the hands and feet, before entering the mosque for prayer. It is fairly modest and can be taken in in just a few minutes, but we found ourselves hanging around to look at it from all different angles. Very beautiful!
