One of the most important landmarks of Marrakech, the Mosque should be visited or at least looked at from the Jma el Fnaa square.

We went there with the family, it is a beautiful place. Park is lovely to sit around, the views are great. At night you can see the masjid from afar. I would recommend anyone who is in Marrakech to visit the site.

This was the first mosque that I visited when I went to Marrakech Morocco in June. We had a private tour guide to take just to the mosques and this was the first one we visited.
