Hassan Tower (Tour Hassan) Tours

Hassan Tower (Tour Hassan)
Rising above the northeastern corner of Rabat, Hassan Tower (Tour Hassan) stands as a visual promise of what the city’s historic residents hoped it to be: a grand city, even a capital city (which it now is). Its construction began in 1195 during the Almohad Dynasty, and it was built as part of a larger mosque, which was meant to be the largest in the world. 

But alas, when the sultan passed away, work on the project came to an end, leaving the mosque unfinished, and its minaret – the tower – standing only 44 meters high (some say half as high as it would have been). Then, come an earthquake in 1755, the incomplete mosque was further destroyed. Today, though, you can still see the surviving, sandstone Hassan Tower, along with the mosque’s remains, such as the columns and walls. Other highlights while here include impressive city and sea views, as well as a visit to the nearby, free-to-enter Mausoleum of Mohammed V.

Practical Info

The tower is about a 20-minute walk from Rabat’s medina, or old town. To better learn about its history, it is a visit better made with a knowledgeable guide.
Address: Boulevard Mohamed Lyazidi, Rabat, Morocco
