The Koutoubia Mosque is one of Marrakech’s oldest buildings, dating back to the 12th century. It’s minaret formed the blueprint for the Giralda in Seville, which I posted about a couple of years ago.
Unfortunately, as with nearly all mosques in Morocco, non-Muslims are not allowed to enter the Koutoubia. To be honest I found this mildly annoying……we’ve visited mosques in Cairo, Jordan, Istanbul and Old Delhi before now, without any of the restrictions that apply in Morocco.
