hassan tower

hassan tower

Hassan tower is a symbol of the city of Rabat, and it is also among the most famous archaeological sites in the Kingdom, as well as being the only historical monument that remains from the works of the Almohad Sultan Yaqoub Al-Mansour (twelfth century), which was considered the largest mosque in the Islamic world.

This huge project did not survive after the death of Sultan Almohad in 1199, and after the earthquake that struck Lisbon in 1755, so that nothing remains of it except the silo that has become the name of this mosque, which is 44 meters high and whose engineering is comparable to that of the Koutoubia Mosque in marrakech And the mosque of Gera to Seville.
