The Koutoubia Mosque At Sunset

Marrakesh, Morocco

The Koutoubia Mosque is the largest mosque in Marrakesh.
It is famed especially for its magnificent minaret, the oldest of the three great Almohad minarets remaining in the world.
Started in 1150, it was completed during the reign of Sultan Yacoub el Mansour (1184-99).
Its minaret is rising almost 70m, it dominates the Djemaa el Fna square and can be seen from much of the city.
