The Moorish Mosque
While in Marrakech, Morocco, I made sure to see this local treasure: the Koutoubia Mosque. Built in the 12th century, it is evidence of the Moorish and Islamic influence the suffused Morocco and still does. The modern city bustles around it and yet there is still an ancient presence surrounding it. Listen for the different dialects and watch for the myriad cultures that make this ancient city what it is today.
