Koutoubia Minaret & Koutoubia Gardens Tips (3)

Sunset at the Koutoubia Gardens

Favorite thing One of the loveliest places in Marrakech, the Koutoubia gardens are an oasis of calm in busy, noisy city. This is a popular place which sees plenty of tourists but also many locals, A nice time to visit is in the early evening before the park closes when twilight falls over the city and the views of the Koutoubia mosque are excellent. The gardens are easy to find from the Koutoubia mosque and there are also entrances on Av Houman el Fetouaki, near Hotel Mamounia.

Koutoubia minaret

Favorite thing This place over look Djemaa el-Fna & medina. I was told not to take photos of the minaret by our taxi driver as it was forbidden ? can some tell me if this is true as you see i did, sorry if i offend anyone, walk in peace.
