  • visit impossible for non Muslim, it looks nice from the outside anyway. the koutoubia is the culmination of Marrakech, no construction is allowed to overtake her, self a building of 5 floors (or 6 levels including ground floor).

  • Watched only from outside. Is impressive! Was very glad to have this opportunity to personally compare minarets around the same age.
