Mosquée de la Koutoubia

This building was hard to miss as it is over twice the hight of all other buildings in the city. We were awoken early every morning by the sound coming from the praying muslims, it was rather beautiful. And repeatedly throughout the day we would hear the same sound.

The mosquee could be seen from practically any point in the city as it was so tall. To get up close there is beautiful detail on the carvings of doors and windows. Although we were unable to enter the mosquee (understandably) it was stunning to just walk around the gardens and absorb the surroundings.
