Tower Hassan Rabat Morocco

Hassan Tower ‎is the minaret of an incompleted mosque.
Begun in 1195 AD,
the tower was to be the largest minaret in the world.
Construction was stopped in 1199
when sultan Yacoub al-Mansour died,
leaving the tower shorter than planned
and the mosque incomplete.

Travelers can’t enter the Tower
but they can walk around it (for free)
