Having been to the mosques in Istanbul, this mosque seemed pretty lackluster. Don't get me wrong, it did have some special touches but just does not compare to the ancient beauties of Turkey. We also did not appreciate how blatantly the guide asked for tips. Note that to see the mosque from inside, you HAVE to buy tickets to the... More

The Hassan II Mosque is an absolutely impressing piece of modern architecture, although the height of the minaret still doesn't feel like 210 metres to me (we got buildings of that size at home in Vienna, and they feel way bigger ....). Also the location at the sea reinforces the general impression. When entering we were lucky to have arrived... More

It's that time of the year when the people pray in Casablanca. No clubs, no nightlife, no other tourist attraction. So probably the only place left was Hassan II mosque. No doubt it was a magnificent piece of artwork but it stays up to that. There are mosques not necessarily this big around the world but with a history. On... More

A beautiful mosque, well maintained, the only downside we must review the brightness of the atmosphere and lighting

One of the many highlights of Casablanca is Hassan II mosque. It is truly a majestic monument, a beautiful mixture of Western architecture and Moroccan style (mosaics). We felt that the administration fee was a bit higher compared to other historical places we visited (120 MAD compared to 50-70 MAD) and the cost did not include a tour guide. Nonetheless,... More

A must see if in Casablanca. Cost estimates to b 1.5b US dollars. Make sure you get a guided tour to take you through. They share insights on the building and its use that you otherwise would not know. It's amazingly constructed in Italian vencian glass and marble.

Very grand mosque with characteristically Islamic traditional architecture. A must visit when in Casablanca. Please don't wear shoes inside the mosque and avoid going during prayer times, they will not let you in

The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca is the third largest mosque in the world, and I was fortunate to see it in the weekend before Ramadan when preparations were underway for the tens of thousands of people to visit and pray. The place is stunning. However, my group had the great misfortune to get a man named Moses as our... More
