Stand in reverence of the artistry and scale of Koutoubia Mosque, constructed during the 12th century CE. The mosque includes a large courtyard and gardens, while the main sandstone and brick represents the traditional Almohad style, with minimal decorations taking the form of geometrical holes and inscriptions. The towering minaret stands 77 m (253 ft) tall, with a spire of gilded copper balls. You can plan Marrakech trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • We spend only 15 minutes outside of this main mosque and trademark of the city of Marrakech, since we are not allowed to enter inside. It is ok for some photos if the local sellers leave you in peace

  • Interesting building and surroundings. As a non-muslim, I couldn't enter but it was a useful landmark to keep our bearings while exploring the area.

  • Really enjoyed visiting here. While not as impressive as the one in Casablanca, this is a 12th century mosque so really impressive for its age. You can get some fantastic pictures if you wander around it, especially from the park just behind it. Well worth a visit.
  • The oldest Mosque in Africa. Dated back 13th Century. I am very fortunate to pray inside. There is women section as well. Sorry to say that they don't allow non Muslims for visiting.
