Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Your driver will pick you up at your hotel, cruise ship dock, or other location specified by you.
We visit the Hassan II Mosque Museum, not the mosque itself. If you’d like to see the mosque interior in tandem with the museums tour, please plan to tour the mosque independently at 9 a.m if you’re joining us for a morning tour, or 1 p.m. if you prefer the afternoon tour. Request the mosque visitor entrance as your pickup location and your guide will meet you there.
At the Hassan II Mosque Museum, inaugurated in 2012, visitors learn about the mosque’s intricate and varied construction stages which combined traditionalism and modernism. Visitors can also view a collection of traditional artisanal products and crafts as well as samples of the carved wood, zellige, mosaics, marble and plaster used in the mosque’s construction.
