Non muslim people can't enter mosques, so much of the "big wonders" can be only seen through a camera. Nice gardens outside. A nice-to-see-closer place though.

I understand that the Koutoubia mosque is a must see destination in Marrakesh...but because tourists aren't allowed inside there really isn't much to see. It's a famous landmark, of course standing 70 m high, and it is beautifully created with quite extensive gardens and fountains around it. We paid 20 drhm for a taxi from the El Badi Place roundabout... More

Impressive minaret at over 70m high. Good as an orientation point as well. Opposite are shaded gardens as well - good for getting away from the square and the souks.

Have seen better mosques around the world when tourists are allowed to vist the site. Nothing to rave about but needs to be better organised with a little sign posts etc Other than take pics and if someone wants pray very good but nothing more to it sorry.

Located right in the middle of the Medina, this mosque tower is impressive and has watched over this neighbourhood for centuries.

Beautiful Mosque, I got a local to knock the door and seek permission to enter. The man inside showed us around and then asked for some money. I gave him 20 dirhams just to say thank you. The artchiture is amazing and it is ever so clean.

We arrived to this place and I found out it was more interesting that what I though it could be. Beside the mosque there are ruins that someone told us were part of the mosque before. This place is just to go and take pictures but I think its quite nice. And in a corner there's a guy selling ceramic... More

First thing you have to understand is that tourists are not allowed in any of the mosques. But they look lovely on the outside and having a tour guide to explain the history and information on them is interesting.
