  MINARET OF THE MOSQUE ES SOUNNA
by matcrazy1
 
 

The main and representative avenue of Rabat, Avenue Mohammed V ends with a square where mosque Es Sounna was built by Sultan Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdellah in the 18th century and renovated recently. Its minaret is the second highest in Rabat (the first is the Tower of Hassan).

Although I was not allowed to enter the mosque (it's closed for non-muslims) I could study its neo-moorish style although islamic architecture focuses on the interior space of a building rather than the exterior.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
