Koutoubia Mosque, Medina, Marrakesh

Medina
Marrakesh
Morocco 40000
Concierge.com's insider take:

The centerpiece of Marrakesh is the square tower of the Koutoubia minaret, attached to the Koutoubia Mosque, built in the late 12th century. It's not particularly high—about 250 feet—but it towers over the Medina thanks to a long-standing planning ordinance that forbids any other building in the old city to rise above the height of a palm tree. Unfortunately, the mosque is only open to Muslims, but the views of the tower up close and a stroll in the adjacent rose gardens are worth the visit.
