A Torre Hassan é o mais famoso monumento de Rabat, erguido em 1195 para ser o maior minarete do mundo, mas nunca foi terminado. A mesquita ao lado desabou durante o terrível terremoto de Lisboa em 1755. Esta torre tem dois irmãos de mesmo estilo e idade: a Giralda de Sevilha e a Koutoubia de Marrakesh. Atrás da torre pode se ver o mar, o rio e a cidade de Salé.
