Kairaouine Mosque (Mosque of al-Qarawiyyin) Tours

Kairaouine Mosque (Mosque of al-Qarawiyyin)
As Morocco’s second-largest mosque and the oldest Islamic building in Fez, it’s hardly surprising that the Kairaouine Mosque (Mosque of al-Qarawiyyin)  is one of the city’s most admired monuments. Founded in 857, the mosque adjoins the historic university of the same name, and is considered Morocco’s holiest mosque, making it an important spiritual center for Muslims.

Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the mosque, which can hold up to 20,000 people at prayer, but it’s still worth a visit to admire its exquisite façade, with its striking green roof and ornate minaret.

Practical Info

The Kairaouine Mosque is located next to the Kairaouine University, in Fez Medina (Fez el-Bali). Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the mosque. 
Address: Fes El Bali, Fez, Morocco

I love to show tourists our historical sights and attractions, but most of all, l love to tell them why they are important, to relate relevant stories and events to these sights. I like to capture their attention and make them feel as though they are part of the story. l have met tourists from all parts of the world , which helped me discover and understand their cultures, traditions, and customs.
