Beautiful view from the gardens

Take a seat on a bench in the shade in the garden behind the Mosque. It is peaceful and lovely providing a break from the busy Jemaa el-Fnaa square.

Though you can only view the exterior it is well worth walking around the outside of this beautiful building .

You obviously can't go inside but you can walk around it and wander around the gardens for free. Just don't take anything of the guys selling macarons, they cost 1dh in the market but here they give you one for 'free' but then demand 20dh. It's not the prettiest place I've ever seen but it's nice to wander around for... More

My Husband and I visited Marrakech at the end of February and we prayed our Asr Salah here before going for an early dinner at the Jemaa el-fnaa. I loved praying here. It is stunning inside. The people were very friendly. I knew we would be visiting and planned for it by wearing an Abaya and Hijaab. We stopped at... More

We walked here one day and it did not disappoint! The Koutoubia mosque itself is stunning but it is the overall atmosphere that really is something else. The peace and tranquillity is tangible and if you find yourself a nice little spot on a bench within the gardens - you will be as close to paradise as you are going... More

The mosque has a lot of history and you can hear the adhan call to prayer 5x a day. Unfortunately the mosque is closed to non-Muslims and tourists, but during Ramadan the surrounding square is filled with people praying outside as there isn't enough space inside to accommodate all the worshippers. Still a lovely exterior and a good place to... More
