Morocco: The Hussan II Mosque in Casablanca

This mosque, built on the Atlantic coastline, is the third largest in the world. Its prayer hall has a capacity of 25,000 people. With the exception of the chandaliers (Venetian glass) and some of the plaster (also from Venice), the entire structure, built from 1987 to 1993, is made from Moroccan materials.
