Mosque Entry

Does anyone know if we can use a credit card for the entrance fee to get into the Hassan mosque? Or can we use Eruos?

Seeing as nobody else has responded, I would imagine the correct response is

no and no

Morocco is a cash society. Withdraw dirhams from an ATM using a standard debit card.

Correct. Dirhams only. Was 120 Dh two years ago for the tour, taking place hourly, on the hour.

On another note Canada010 welcome to the Moroccan forums. Type "banks & money" into the search box above to discover useful advice from many contributors.

Thanks for your answers. That is what I thought. We will purchase our currency before we get to the mosque for the entrance. I appreciate your help. We will be visiting Casa on a cruise and plan to take a petit taxi to the mosque and go inside. All of the ship tours only visit the exterior. We want to go inside so hope that there will be space available once we get there.

For the entrance fee is 100Dirhams per person which means 9 Euros, 1 Pounds equals 13 Dirhams, as you know Hassan 2 Mosque: is the biggest monument in Morocco, and the 3rd biggest in the whole world out of Mecca.

- Important: the mosque can only be visited with official guides, found inside the mosque complex. When you approach the mosque, go through the outer arches and to the left. You'll see a big flight of stairs there. Descend and you'll find yourself in the area where tickets are bought. Guides are available for major European languages: English, German, Italian and Spanish. The Hassan II mosque can be visited only between the prayers, with official guides, at 10am, 11am and 2pm. Miss any of those periods and you aren't going to be able to enter the mosque.

Happy Travels.
