In the 1980’s, the city of Casablanca was not as replete with historical monuments as it is today. Then the king of Morocco decided this needs to be changed and hired a French architect and some 6000 labourers to build the 7th largest mosque of the world and the largest of the country. With a capacity to accommodate over 25,000 worshippers within the walls of the mosque and 80,000 outside, the minaret of the mosque stands tall 690 feet from the ground. On top of this minaret, shines a light in the direct of Mecca. The best way to get around the mosque is to opt for the hour long guided tour.

A large and impressive building. Open in the morning for tours in various languages. Considering you have to pay for a tour I think they could employ more than one English tour guide, as we ended up a group of over 50 and so it was a little different difficult to hear all of the explanation. That said it was still worth a visit as one of the few tourist attractions in Casablanca.
Hassan mosque is amazing!! The only mosque that's built on top of the water. The square outside of the mosque is super clean and not overcrowded. The architecture itself is bravo!! The only scenic place in Casablanca lol. This place has a majestic feel to it. As waves hits it's base, it forms a layer of fog covering the mosque. It's definitely worth a visit when your in Casablanca.
I‘d heard from locals that every Moroccan is obligatory to financially support the Mosque construction. Certainly the result is great, giving powerful impression to visitors. Beautiful and sacred whitening facades, interior finishing is overall covered with intriguing floral patterns, no matter ceiling, floors or walls and doors... rather busy, but working harmony by one another! Anyway, interesting to learn and see such an art work.
Place is beautiful and I really recommend it. Please be aware that due to daylight saving time there are different hours now. Also be aware of taxi Maria waiting next to the museum, that are fake taxis charging 100 MAD for ride to Casa Voyageurs.
Listen here, you have to see this place up close to really experience it. At first I thought seeing it while driving by in a taxi was enough. I was so wrong. You need to really stand in the massive shadow cast by this grand magnificent piece of art to fully appreciate it. The seaside promenade by the mosque offers a great perspective as well.
