The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco

Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca

On the first morning of our tour of Morocco we left our hotel in Casablanca early and within a few minutes’ drive we had arrived at the magnificent Hassan II Mosque. This is a truly amazing building in many ways:

  • It is the 7th largest mosque in the world
  • The minaret at 210 metres is the tallest in the world
  • It is built out over the sea, which made it a challenging engineering project
  • The mosaics and artistry are only two of its great attributes

In the coming days I will post many more photos of this truly amazing building.
