  • The mosque is very worth seeing because it also looks very old. I always like something like that, because it seems more original. The park around it is fantastic and you can also sit down and find peace (I was there at 10 o hr, no idea what it looks like later). You are also not harassed or cultivated, so that you can well spend an hour on your way.

  • It is next to Jamaa La Fna Square. Ample space and large avenues. At your side there are taxi stops with very reasonable negotiable prices!

  • Beautiful mosque with lovely interior. I was amazed to see so many people sleeping there, because inside the mosque weather was much cooler than outside. To my surprise, there were no fans or air conditioning inside the mosque, it was all cool because of architecture of the mosque. I really enjoyed my visit to the mosque, there a nice park beside the mosque and it's right in the city centre.
  • Very beautiful. It is a monument right across from the famous Square. It is easy to get to from all sides. Beware of the people in the courtyard trying to get you to buy things. Very nice to visit st night especially with the lush gardens at the back in which you can walk through
