“Can you stand one more mausoleum?”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Mausoleums to Morocco are what Cathedrals are to Europe.....but I still enjoy every one for they are a marvel of the spiritual beliefs of the people as well as their artistry. Meknes is the natural stop after Volubilis and as long as you're there, this side trip is worth it. Make sure you take time to just "be" in this space for you'll be a better person for that.

“Impressive”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Even in the pouring rain the mausoleum was beautiful and very impressive. The guards were colorful. Definately worth seeing if you are in Meknes.

“Inescapable site from Meknes”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

One of the most popular site in Meknes. Free entrance, 2 rooms and one patio to visit. One of the only place opened for visit for non Muslim so take the opportunity.
