This iconic mosque and minaret is one you cannot miss in Marrakech. It may not have the splendor of Casablanca Ahmed II Mosque but it has a more homely feel than its larger neighbour. A must see, and walking distance from the square. Just try and dodge the beggers on your way there

Unless you are doing as part of larger tour if you want to know the history better of googling and walking around its nice but not worth tour as its walking around gardens (unless you are Muslim). Also lots of beggars

The viewing and entourage of the Koutoubia are definately worth a watch. The Morrocan government is trying to make the surroudings even more pleasant by building a park with a whole bunch of orange trees and fountains. A nice welcome to a beautiful city!

You just have to view the place from outside if you're not a Muslim. It is part of our tour so we got a bit of history about Islam in Morocco when we got here. The Medina/markets are nearby so you can go to them by foot if you're in this mosque.

You can see the tower from all over the city. Non-muslims can't go inside but it's worth a wander around the outside and the small gardens are fairly pleasant if you can find a shaded bench.

Performed Asr Salaat at this Mosque. It is only open for around 15 minutes before and after each Salaat time. The rest of the day the Mosque doors are closed to everyone. The mosque does have space for muslimahs We came with wudu, so can't comment on the facilities Just remember, as with mosques throughout central Morocco, you cannot pop... More
