Dominating every sightseeing list, the Koutobia Mosque simply cannot be missed. It’s Marrakech’s most famous landmark and its iconic soaring minaret can be seen from almost every street of the city, inviting you to get closer. Gorgeous golden domes adorn the tower and the mosque is decorated with gorgeous archways, intricate decorations and Arabic calligraphy.
Seeing the Koutoubia mosque with its expansive courtyard isn’t even enough – this is a place you experience. If it’s your first time going to an Islamic city, then you will be enamored with the soul-stirring call to prayer that echoes through the minaret and into the city every few hours. Ask your private local guide to take you at the time of prayer!
