Walking to the Mosque was quite easy and we enjoyed views of the Blue City and the surrounding green of the Rif Mountains. We are older visitors but found the walk quite comfortable. There were many photo opportunities. You can not enter the Mosque but...More

The hike to the mosque takes about 15-20 min and is very do-able as it is mostly paved with steps (just allot more time if you’re not a regular hiker/need to go more slowly). It does provide the best views of the town. We stayed...More

It's 15-20 min walking up hill from down town. Children can walk easily. It's the best place to sit and watch the town at sunset. The Spanish Mosque is abandoned and there is nothing to visit. I guess in the evening could be a little...More

The climb is a bit hard for unfit people but the view at the top is amazing, you can see the whole city and take lovely pics. And if your lucky there will be a band at the top playing music.

A comfortable 20 minute walk/hike to the mosque. I'm age 64 and had no problems. You do it for the view, not the mosque, which is closed. Bring some water if you go during the heat of the day. This is the spot where you...More
