Know Before You Go
To visit Tin Mal you will have to take one of the most breathtaking roads in Morocco, the Tizi n’Test in the High Atlas. Tin Mal is just about 100km from Marrakech, but it could not look more different. The Mosque is just after the sign for Tin Mal, and to enter it you will need to contact Youssef, the official guard. Brick and stone pillars rise to create beautiful arches, and the remaining stucco will give you a glimpse of how it must have looked in its times of glory. There is no fee to visit the Mosque, but donations are welcome.
Although beautiful, the road through the High Atlas is tricky and a driver is recommended. The guardian's number is 0662725612 (it is also on the door of the Mosque), but keep in mind that you are in the middle of the mountains and connection is not always the best. In that case, asking a local should do the trick.
