The simple-yet-striking red Laayoune Grand mosque shows the peace and love of a religious community. The mosque stands on a public square surrounded by a few lonely palm trees that add to its simplistic beauty. Admire the bright white ornamentation above the horseshoe arches, typical of Islamic-style architecture. The friendly locals are said to have descended from Nomadic tribes.

  • Going on vacation to Morocco almost every year, and Laayoune every two or three. Jente is wonderful, friendly and hospitable. But the country is not ready for tourism, at least the official treatment of police officers in customs and controls of Highway sige being... say... something rare. It shows them that do not want tourists and especially Spanish. It is not dangerous, you can walk down any street, something that cannot be said of the Spanish capitals mallorie anytime.

  • Beautiful typical Moroccan minaret of the name of the alawite monarch Moulay Abdelaziz. The mosque is large enough and the minaret is finely decorated in the zellij. ... Very beautiful...
