The tower and the surroundings are very beautiful. I admire the details carven on the walls. At first I thought it was just a boring landmark, but soon as I arrived I realized it was bigger and more beautiful than pictures. You can reach the tower using tram, stopping at "Place 16 Novembre" because it is so close to the... More

The characteristics of the Hassan Tower are that the 4 faces are different and currently due to work in progress, 3 are fully visible and can be enjoyed

Hassan tower is a massive tower .we could see the mausoleum from outside the building because we were not allowed to go inside .the place has very big garden around where we had enjoyable walking. it also has clean toilets. This is free to public .You shouldn't miss it when you are in Rabat.

An 11th century monument that is a must see in Rabat. The Hassan Tower in Rabat was built at the same time as the Giralda in Seville (Spain) and Koutoubia (Marrakech). Interesting place...

Hassan tower is a big reminder of a mosque which was never completed. It is 44m high, this time was under reconstruction, but I already saw it before.

A massive tower and mausoleum. Not a whole lot on the grounds, but the absence of other things seem to make the buildings that much more significant. Inside the mausoleum is what you'd expect: intricately and elegantly decorated. Definitely worth a visit. We didn't do a tour, but seems like it'd be worth doing especially if you're interested in history.

With a tour guide that can provide more historical information, you can better appreciate this place. It was lovely though for photographs especially in front of the mausoleum and also with all the columns as background. Inside the mausoleum is also very interesting to go around and appreciate Muslim culture and architecture. The time we went, construction was still going... More

I've visited here a couple of times, the first time the tower was viewable. The last time the tower was under construction however I was watching the news last night and the tower is now finished construction! This is a nice place to come visit if you're in Rabat. Very relaxing area to be, something completely unique to see. It's... More
