TETOUAN
Grand Mosque


Tetouan, Morocco


Being rather on the unoriginal side, the fairly new Grand Mosque in the medina is closed for non-Muslims, but still it offers nice facades that can be seen by everyone.
The quarter around the Grand Mosque was the Jewish quarter until the Mellah was established in the early 19th century.
