  • It is a very nice structure from the outside, a rather typical Moroccan mosque but considered one of the oldest and supposedly prettiest. It is located in Medina but you can instinctively feel from the atmosphere you are not welcome if not Muslim. So - make note of it from the appropriate distance. When you enter the Ali Ben Youssef mosque you are transported into a world of historic and astounding beauty, the Zellig (mosaics) , Gibbs (carved plasterwork) and woodwork around the Mihrab are truly astounding feats of craftsmanship, the Wudu forecourt is a place of serene peace and tranquility. Finally if you are present at the Friday prayers and hear the multitude say Ameen you will be present at an event that goes back 886 years, probably the most historical event to happen in Marrakech and an event which has occurred 46072 times since the original construction of this fine example of Islamic design and architecture.
