“Seen from everywhere!!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Great landmark which is visible from everywhere. A real focal point and worth seeing with your own eyes. Non-muslims cannot enter the mosque but still worth a visit for a photograph or two!!

“A landmark, the tallest building in Marrakech”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Nice to walk in the small park next to the mosque, and also the minaret is beautifully decorated and can be seen from all over the Medina. When your lost, it´s a good guiding star.
Non-muslims are not allowed to visit inside, but you can view it unclose from the outside.

“You can see it from everywhere in Marrakech”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Koutoubia is the very heart of Marrakech and is so majestic. It actually helps you get your directions as you can see it from almost everywhere in town.
