The simple-yet-striking red Laayoune Grand mosque shows the peace and love of a religious community. The mosque stands on a public square surrounded by a few lonely palm trees that add to its simplistic beauty. Admire the bright white ornamentation above the horseshoe arches, typical of Islamic-style architecture. The friendly locals are said to have descended from Nomadic tribes. Be mindful of the dress codes since the mosque is a place of faith for the local population. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Laayoune holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Laayoune Grand mosque and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
