Trip Planner: Africa / Morocco / Rabat-Sale-Kenitra / Rabat / Hassan Tower
Hassan Tower, a partially completed minaret of an unfinished mosque, now represents part of a World Heritage Site. Started in 1195, the minaret was half its intended height when its founder Sultan Yaqub al-Mansur died just before the turn of the century. The tower was left as it was, with a height of 44 m (140 ft), with work on the rest of the mosque also halted. Constructed from red sandstone, the structure has a striking appearance, its Moorish design reminiscent of towers and churches scattered across Spain. Our Rabat trip itinerary planner makes visiting Hassan Tower and other Rabat attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

This famous red sandstone landmark is a remnant of a 12th-century minaret that was supposed to be next to the largest mosque in the Muslim but was never built.

Absolutely beautiful architecture - unfortunately it was unfinished. I wonder what it would look like if it was completed. Beautiful work from flood to the walls n doors. Unable to enter the mosque if it’s not a prayer time. Nice place to take pics.
Interesting architecture and huge premises but it’s been closed , can not be visited. You can only see it partially as it’s surrounded by walls and closed fences. The location is very clean and neatly maintained. Must visit places in Rabat. No tickets needed.
