Owner description: This is a beautiful mosque. Remember to remove your shoes before entering, as it is an important Islamic tradition that preserves the sanctity of the mosque. However, you are not allowed to enter as a non-Muslim, so respect that rule or you might run in to some real problems with the community.

“MAKE SURE YOU VISIT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I expect the Kasbah is often missed by travellers to Marrakesh as the main square (Jamaa El Fna) gets all the press. Well, don't get fooled as whilst it hasn't as much to offer, it's still a great place to visit and once you've experienced the main street, which is full of food stalls, smoke and food smells, you can visit the place of 1001 spices, the Saadian tombs or the mosque. Also on the main street is the biggest souvenir shop your likely to find, it's literally packed roof to ceiling with stuff and NO BARTERING. It's a welcome relief from haggling for everthing from your cab trip to asking directions!

“Fantastic architecture - let down by poor management”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

The Kasbah Mosque is an amazing building to take in from the outside. As best we could see you couldn't go in and tour. Surprisingly for a holy building there was a lot of litter piled in the areas surrounding it. Some of the majesty was lost as you took in the garbage and people peeing against the walls!

The Kasbah Mosque was breathtaking. Modelled very closely on the Koutobia Minaret.

“A Stunning Minaret !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

The minaret of the Kasbah mosque is absolutely beautiful . I actually had to sit at one of the many benches facing the mosque and marvel at this piece of art . Many other tourists had the same idea as me . The mosque is still under renovations so it is not open for public yet . Don't forget to go next door and get a ticket to see the impressive Saadian Tombs !!
