Very nice looking

Nice place when you're tired from the crowds and the dust of medina. Good place to hide in a shade, I think it is still under refurbishment so cannot wait until it's fully ready.

The mosque is 5 minutes walk from Jama el fna. The pink standstone structure is picturesque. However please note that our guide advised us that nonmuslims are not allowed to go into this mosque by law. So we just stood at one corner and admired the beauty.

It was the minaret of this mosque which we used to guide us through Marrakesh, at least when we were in the Medina. It is the most important mosque, the inspiration to build the Giralda, and non-Muslims can not enter. However, they can admire the outside beauty of this XII century Almohad construction. Their gardens can also be accessed without... More

Most beautiful and highest mosque in Marrakech. It is unfortunately a huge discrimination: you are not allowed in the mosque when you're not a muslim. Isn't one of their pillars in Islam 'equality' and 'respect'? "cette mosque est réservé exclusivement aux cultes musulmans"
