Reviews Hassan Tower
Hassan marked a historic
The most famous monument of Rabat. Sultan Yacoub El Mansour (XII century) plans to build the largest mosque in the Muslim world after the Samarra in Iraq. Unfortunately, the work was abandoned after his death in 1199. Tower was peaking at over 60m, but only reached 44m. Originally the minaret was built to accommodate up to 40,000 people. His style is a masterpiece of traditional Moroccan art.
