The Hassan Tower is surrounded by a large place with cut pillars. The locals are climbing on the pillars to take some photos. The Mausoleum of Mohammed V is more interesting, architecturally. You can also see guards with traditional costumes.

The Hassan Tower is a two-fer, as it's right next to the Mohamed V Mausoleum, which is very impressive

The incomplete construction of the biggest mosque in Morocco is very interesting and a good walk. The uniformed guards of the Royal mausoleum are fun to see.

The tower is all that remains of a vast mosque and is where the Mausoleum of Mohammed V is also situated. It is a very pleasant site with views over the sea. Worth a visit
