One of the largest mosques in the world, Hassan II Mosque is an impressive place of worship and a symbolic landmark of the city. Nearly 1,000 construction workers and 10,000 artists took nearly seven years to complete this structure, known for its highly decorated interior (viewable only as part of a guided tour), rich in Islamic artistic motifs, including geometric shapes and sections from the Quran. The 210 m (689 ft) tall minaret stands above the old town, while the main building looks out across the Atlantic Ocean.

Hassan II Mosque Reviews
The Hassan II Mosque is an impressive structure located on the edge of the Atlantic. It is best viewed with a guide. more »
מדהים ביופיו. קצת פרדוקסלי למול העוני מסביב. חסר כל הגיון שהושקע כה הרבה כסף במסגד זה במקום באוכלוסיה החלשה בעם. more »Beautiful. A little paradoxical in front of the poverty around. It lacks any sense that there is so much money invested in this mosque instead of the weakest population of the people.
It is a spectacular monument in Morocco, although I'm not a Muslim. If you're in Casablanca it's a must see attraction. Although if you're a non Muslim you can't enter the building. The building is located next to the beach, so in the warm months it will be a relaxing walk.
A large and impressive building. Open in the morning for tours in various languages. Considering you have to pay for a tour I think they could employ more than one English tour guide, as we ended up a group of over 50 and so it was a little different difficult to hear all of the explanation. That said it was still worth a visit as one of the few tourist attractions in Casablanca.
