Owner description: This stately mosque, a fine example of pure Moroccan architecture, is the only one in the city that non-Muslims may visit.

This is definitely the highlight of Casablanca. The amount of finely-detailed work that has gone into this place is astonishing, and must be seen to be believed. If you're not a Muslim, the only way to get in is as part of a guided tour (these run regularly throughout the day, when the mosque isn't being used for prayers). It's well worth the Dh120 for the 45-minute tour. Take a bit of extra time either before or after your tour to admire the mosaics on the walls and patterns on the doors.

This amazing mosque is a must visit - not only does it have one of the tallest minarets in the middle East it has some of the most beautiful Moroccan plaster work on the walls.
The structure is huge and beautifully designed.

There isn't too much to do in Casa as tourist but this mosque is def worth a visit. The opining times are a bit odd and I think there is just one tour sometime in the afternoon. So plan ahead maybe!

If in Casablanca, do find the time to visit the Hassan II Mosque, quite rare to see such an impressive modern building built in the style from centuries past.
The tour costs about £10 and you do get to see a lot considering it is a place of worship. When I said is it worth €800m in the title, I am not attempting to judge, it is more so that on my visit listening to half a dozen tour guides ( it seems most languages catered for ) I was amused to hear so many different amounts quoted by each guide. Apparently the true cost is a state secret ( or is it ) well the guides there are not giving it away as I heard anything from €500m to €2billion.
As a non muslim it is one of the very few Mosque you can see from the inside, though certain areas are restricted to non- muslims, however inside the main indoor prayer area you do get a true scale of the building and a small understanding of what the room may be like with 25,000 people inside !
They were hoovering when we visited, nice chap pushing around what looked like a small car!
Although the lighting is not great and the sheer scale makes photography difficult it is camera friendly no frowns when you take your camera out.

Ricks bar is nearby so whenever in Casablanca jump in a Petite Taxi and pay a visit
