Grande Mosquée


Grande Mosquée Review

With its perforated cupola, the Great Mosque is a historically significant UNESCO World Heritage Site. Dating from the 12th century, the mosque, founded by Sultan Abd el-Moumen, is possibly the oldest Almohad structure in existence and believed to predate the mosque at Tin Mal. Of architectural importance is the mosque's inscribed 3-ton chandelier and intricately designed windows and doorways.
