مرحبا بك في المغرب
Welcome to Morocco! Bienvenue a Maroc!
The Minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque is the landmark of the Moroccan city of Marrakech.
The Koutoubia (or Kutubiyya) Mosque is the biggest and most important in Marrakech, once an imperial city and capital of Morocco. "Koutoubia" means booksellers, and it is named like that because it is located in what used to be the neighborhood of this trade. The mosque was finished during the reign of Almohad Caliph Yaqub al-Mansour (1184-1199). This minaret is the first of 3 sister towers; the other two being La Giralda in Seville, Spain, and the Hassan Tower in Rabat, Morocco, both modeled after the Koutoubia's.
The minaret tower is 77 metres (253 ft) in height, including the spire, itself 8 metres (26 ft) tall. Each side of the square base is 12.8 metres (42 ft) in length. The minaret is visible from a distance of 29 kilometres (18 mi) (From Wikipedia).
