Create an itinerary including Hassan Tower
Hassan Tower, a partially completed minaret of an unfinished mosque, now represents part of a World Heritage Site. Started in 1195, the minaret was half its intended height when its founder Sultan Yaqub al-Mansur died just before the turn of the century. The tower was left as it was, with a height of 44 m (140 ft), with work on the rest of the mosque also halted. Constructed from red sandstone, the structure has a striking appearance, its Moorish design reminiscent of towers and churches scattered across Spain. Our Rabat trip itinerary planner makes visiting Hassan Tower and other Rabat attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The tower is with the mausoleum. What a beautiful, impressive, historical building it is! Standing under it you have a sense of the past.

  • Hassan Tower is located right across from Muhammed V Mausoleum , and the complex is considered to be one of the most interesting touristic/historical must-see sites to visit in Rabat. The 40 meters...

  • Unfortunately pretty much everything was closed which was surprising for a busy weekend. Hopefully it will be open when you visit. It's a beautiful and historic area otherwise, and worth a quick visit (4🆓! free entry)
  • Interesting historically and architecturally. You can only see it from afar due to Covid but you can still take good pictures from outside, as well as of the horse mounted royal guards. I lucked out with a foggy day, which added drama to my pictures.
  • Absolutely breathtaking. I hope it reopens fully once Covid calms down. Definitely will be back to see it when it does!
  • I like this place
  • I like visiting this place with family. You can have a short stroll around in the nearby garden and the mausoleum is always a great hit for kids. Don't forget to bring water with you!
