The minaret is 70 metres high and built in the 12th century. The structure looks like new and at the top are three copper balls. Adjacent are the remains of the original mosque.

The mosque is surrounded by a beautiful park and orange groves. It’s open to prayer for Muslims daily. While you’re around, make sure to grab some fresh juice from one of the vendors around the grounds. It’s so refreshing and inexpensive!

Normally Koutoubia at any time you can go to see; but just the muslims can get access to his minaret.

Apologies. I’m not actually sure what time jummah starts. When we went we spent the whole morning there and that way we didn’t miss it. If you look non tourism guides it may help.
