Koutoubia Mosque and Minaret Tours

Built in the 12th century, the Koutoubia Mosque is not only the largest in Marrakech, it is also one of the most influential buildings in the Muslim world. Throughout Spain and beyond you’ll see echoes of its intricate geometric stone work, graceful arches and imposing square minaret.

This last feature, flood-lit at night, is a much-needed point of reference when exploring the low-lying tangle of streets and alleyways which comprise the medina. At 220 feet / 61 meters it was quite a climb for the five daily calls to prayer in pre-elevator times, so a spiraling ramp was installed for the muezzin to ride on horseback to the summit.

Practical Info

The Koutoubia Mosque, with the adjacent Djemaa el Fna square, forms the heart of old Marrakech. The interior of the mosque is only open to Muslim visitors, but all are free to explore the exterior.
