Nice place to come and see, you can climb up on the little towers around. You can find a place to sit and have some rest.

Rabat Hassan Tower: It is part of what was to be the second largest mosque after Smarra in Iraq. What is left, the minaret or tower still impressive to see and of course photograph!! The construction of the mosque to which the tower was essential, started in 1195 as a celebration to the victory against the Spanish Christians in Alarcos.... More

This is a package deal - you are already at one attraction and you get this as well! While it is impressive, it largely impresses because of its location to the Mausoleum. An unfinished mosque, this tower and the area around it is large, open and full of local Moroccans taking pictures, walking and spending time in a wonderful courtyard... More

The area around the Hassan tower is full of atmosphere and space. The view of the tower from the opposite end of the plaza is particularly spectacular.

Mohammed V Mausoleum shares the spot with the Hassan Tower. At a strategic point looking out toward the Atlantic Ocean, the tower is a must-see for Moroccans and tourists alike. It is close to the embassies and Chellah.

I do not believe you can go into the tower. But the grounds around are large and walking between the greek like columns was lots of fun and great picture opportunities. Also, there are lots of other things to see near by to take pictures of or just people watch in the square.

The site offers wonderful views of the surrounding city and is right next to the Mausoleum of Muhammad V. That makes it pretty convenient for sightseeing. My wife was fond of the horse mounted guards at the front gate in their traditional dress. No one seems to mind if you crawl on top of the marble columns in the courtyard... More

This is a place where family come with their children in the evening to find peace and security. The children like to play and run in this large area made of unfinished pillars. The Mausoleum where 2 former kings and a prince are buried in a most beautiful setting with a typical Moroccan architecture and a unique mosaic work on... More

This site is partially completed and executed but it is right outside of the Maoseleum of Mohammad V. Worth a stop if you already at that. The tower is even incomplete.

From afar the site appeared interesting, but at close quarters, I did not feel it warranted the effort taken to reach it as there was very little to see.
