Koutoubia Mosque is the largest mosque in Marrakesh. It is located in the southwest medina quarter of Marrakesh, near the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, and is flanked by large gardens. It is an important example of Almohad architecture and of Moroccan mosque architecture generally. The minaret tower, 77 metres in height, is decorated with varying geometric arch motifs and topped by a spire and metal orbs. The minaret is considered an important landmark and symbol of Marrakesh.
