Create an itinerary including Koutoubia Mosque
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.

  • Comes in handy as orientation. Westerners / non moslims aren't allowed to visit any mosques in Morocco - except the one on Casablanca (why...?). So what's there more to say...
  • Beautifully intricate construction. An oasis of calm adjoining the bustling Marrakech market. The nighttime illumination sets it aglow, visible from a long distance.
