Hassan II Mosque, Casablanca: 75 reviews and 146 photos

 
 

King Hassan II, "Commander of the believers", is descending from Mohammed, and wanted to leave to the posterity a monument worthy his reign. It had to be finished for his 60th birthday and the time allotted was pretty tight. When completed, the minaret is the highest in the world (200 m) and can be seen from several dozen of kilometers away.

Address: Boulevard Sour Jdid, Casablanca. Morocco
Directions: North of Boulevarfd de. Tiznit at the end of Blvd. Sour Jdid.
