The single face of Mansourah's great minaret stands within ruined walls of what was once the mosque of the Merinide capital of Eastern Algeria. It is beautifully inlaid with turquoise tile and its doorway is richly carved. Not to be missed while in Tlemcen.
Call in. Beautiful ruined remains of a huge mosque built in 1335.
Provides a bit of a lover’s lane for the locals, and why not? It does have a romantic air about it.
The prayer hall measuring 60x55m is visible and the 40m minaret.
It is an interesting place particularly if you know about its history; the place lacks basic infrastructure, restaurants, toilets, guiding signs, or enough information. However I could learn about its history from the internet. Worth to visit if you are visiting Tlemcen but read about...More
There must be something you see there. You can park your car for free some meters far from the spot. Or you can pay just next to the location. Get a selfie, use 360 pics, or street view to enjoy the experience.
Worth visit - altough the place is actually very small, surrounded with the ruins of walls, which reminds of its magnificency. Still the minaret is very beautiful and interesting.. You can see it from quite distance, as it reaches almost 38 m.. Very nice
