Walked to the mosque from Jemaa el-Fnaa. Then around the mosque on the right, through the gardens in the back, over to La Momuonia Hotel, and came back on the other side of the mosque. Landmark minaret which should be seen up close.

We passed by the Koutoubia Mosque which was unfortunately closed. Built during the 12th century under the Almohads, it has a beautiful minaret 77 meters in height which has inspired others such as the Giralda in Sevilla

Masterpiece. Its minaret is the twin of La Giralda in Seville. They do not allow non-Muslim tourists to enter. Horrible the led panel placed in front of one of the doors, ruin the poetry.

Unfinished like Hassan Tower in Rabat. We could see from outside only. Just a stroll from the main square, Medina etc. Takes just a few minutes to see.

Normally Koutoubia at any time you can go to see; but just the muslims can get access to his minaret.

Apologies. I’m not actually sure what time jummah starts. When we went we spent the whole morning there and that way we didn’t miss it. If you look non tourism guides it may help.
