Near the mausoleum and old mosque. One of three similar towers built by same architect - others are in Marrakesh and Seville, so fun to compares and reminisce about trips gone by.

This is an incomplete mosque. It was supposed to be the largest mosque but when the Sultan Mansour died, the construction stopped. It was founded by a Berber muslim, Yaqub Al Mansur. We continued on to this place from the Kasbah. It is another 25 minute walk along the marina. There are some areas of the path that is under... More

It's a tower that is part of a mosque but it is not complete and there really is nothing special about it. You can go and see it and check it off the list but it is nothing to write home about.

Hassan Tower or Tour Hassan is the minaret of an incomplete mosque in Rabat. . This tower was designed to be the largest minaret in the world. Even the mosque was meant to be the world's largest.. Unfortunately it remains unfinished even today. Today even this incomplete structure continues to draw tourists from all over.

There was something a little eerie about being in the square with the unfinished mosque and Hassan Tower. The area was going to be the site of the largest mosque in the world, but due to the death of the King, the project was abandoned. The tower itself does serve as a minaret and provides call to prayer five times... More

It is wonderful to walk about the area among the columns, admiring the fountain, the minaret, and also the view of the city down the hill.

It's right by the ocean, so you get the nice ocean breeze. The mosque has a large, open court where everyone (Muslim and non-Muslim) can go, which consists of ancient pillars and the old, antique minaret, which is the oldest part of the mosque. Then there is the modern mosque build by the Royal Family, and which you have to... More

The facts are that the tower was partially built but was abandoned and the adjacent mosque was destroyed by an earthquake. It is only a visit to the nearby mausoleum which justifies a visit.
