Mosques

Mosques

Every city, town and village in Morocco has at least one mosque and as long as there’s one person still living there, it’s the best maintained building in town. Unlike the domed structures I was expecting, Moroccan mosques comprise a rectangular courtyard (presumably with the walls aligned with the cardinal directions) and a tall square spire in one corner. The highest spire that I know of climbs to 67m.
