“Really Interesting”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

As a non-Muslim I was unable to go into the mosque, but our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the mosque and its relevance to Marrakech.

“Beautiful to look at but.......”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

The architecture and the call to prayer are nice but the novelty wears off as soon as you realise you cannot enter the mosque. Major disappointment in terms of things to do as you can see it in about 10 minutes and have nothing much else to do with it. On a positive note the view of the mineret suring sunrise and sunset is breathtaking so make sure to get a glimpse.

“Beautiful mosque”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We visited during Ramadan and the experience of the faithful at the mosque is quite moving. You cannot go inside the mosque if you are not a Muslim, but the exterior is well worth the visit.

“Beautiful Minaret and garden”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

The garden is amazing for escaping from the hot Moroccan sun, but try not to be too close during the call to prayer because it can be quite loud.
