Bab Guissa Mosque

The Bab Guissa Mosque is a medieval mosque in northern Fes el-Bali, the old city of Fez, Morocco. It is located next to the city gate of the same name, and also features an adjoining madrasa.

Based on an inscription on one of its marble columns, the mosque is thought to originate from the 14th century, during the reign of the Marinid sultan Abu al-Hasan (1331-1351), though there is not much available information. In the late 18th century, the Alaouite sultan Mohammed ibn Abdallah (1757-1790 CE) built an adjoining madrasa while also restoring and expanding the mosque itself. The mosque was reportedly heavily restored and modified at the end of the 19th century as well.
