At the end of an alley like a three-dimensional maze in the Old City of Fez, I saw a square object stretching into the sky. This was the minaret of a mosque. This minaret belongs to the Chrabliyine Mosque, which was built in 1342. There were no tall buildings around, so the minaret towered over the old city as if glaring down at the city.
The minaret of this mosque is also angular like other minarets in Morocco. I guess it is the style of this area to make square structures. The minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakech is also a square pillar.
You can see a speaker set up at the top. When the time for prayers comes, the azan will be played from it.
