One of the main sights of Marrakech is the Koutoubia Mosque and its Minaret – an obvious landmark located just off Djemma el Fna. The minaret is the twin of the Giralda Tower in Seville, built when the Moors ruled Spain in the 12th century. Seen from all over the city, it is beautiful lit up at night and very atmospheric during a call to prayer.
