It took 6,000 traditional Moroccan artisans six years to build this magnificent mosque, which was commissioned by King Hassan II and completed in 1993. Its towering minaret is the city’s most recognizable landmark, while the interior is a masterpiece of intricate mosaics, sculpted plaster moldings and carved and painted wooden ceilings. With room for 25,000 worshipers, it is one of the largest mosques in the world. Respectfully dressed non-Muslims can view the inside on an hour-long tour.
