    The Kasbah Mosque

    Near the Bab Agnaou gate is the Kasbah Mosque which is known as el-Mansouria. It was named after Sultan Ahmed el Mansour who had it built in 1190 During Moulay Abdullah’s reign it was restored and then again by Sidi Mohammed ben Abdallah. Similar to the Koutoubia Minaret but not as impressive. The mosque is not open to non Muslims.

    Mosque of the Almohad Kasbah

    Also known as the Kasbah Mosque.

    It was built in the 12th century by Yacoub El Mansour.

    Its minbar is apparently quite spectacular, being made of sculptured wood, with inlaid mosaics of precious woods and stones.

    Unfortunately, non Muslims are prohibited from entering the Mosque, but the outer walls and minaret are worth a glance.

    Sights nearby include the Saadian Tombs, Bab Agneau and the Badi Palace.

    Not really much to say about this one as it's yet another mosque that doesn't allow non-Muslims to enter. But it's still a pretty impressive sight and as it's near the Saadian tombs and the Palais el-Badi you might as well have a look. At prayer times the street outside is absolutely packed with worshippers - it's one of the city's most popular mosques.
