Koutoubia Mosque is located in the heart of Marrakesh, just steps away from the bustling Jemaa el-Fnaa square. Its 250-foot tall minaret (a mosque’s tower used to announce the call to prayer) is one of the important recognizable landmarks of the city.
Epcot fans will no doubt recognize this from the Morocco Pavilion as a scale version stands proudly above the pavilion.
Visiting the real mosque is reserved for practicing Muslims, but its surrounding archeological excavation site, gardens, and grounds are open to the public, offering incredible views of the beautiful, 12-century sandstone structure.
