Youssef Mosque, Marrakech, Morocco.
09:00 am - 06:00 pm
One wonders why the Almohads showed such mercy on this quaint little monument and did not destroy it. Even so, a short visit to this fascinating relic from history is warranted just to see the influence of Hispano-moresque architecture.
If you are a fan of history, you will find this place quite intriguing. One of the most unique things about this sight is that it was built under the ground level.
