“Probably the best known building in Northern Africa, the story of Koutoubia tells the history of Marrakech. The name translates roughly into English as "library," due to the wonderful library that was once housed in the mosque. There were also many book-sellers whose stalls lined the narrow alleyways surrounding the building. Entrance to the holy place is strictly forbidden to non-worshippers. The minaret, or tower, used to call the faithful to prayer, is 203 feet tall. The golden globe at its peak was added to the tower in 1190.”
Pamphlet, Mario is Missing!

The Koutoubia Mosque, also written as the Kutubiyya Mosque (Arabic: جامع الكتبية), is the largest mosque in Marrakech, Morocco. In the PC version of Mario is Missing!, Koopa Troopas steal one of the Gold Globes at the top of the mosque's minaret, forcing the mosque to close down until Luigi tracks it down and returns it, proving its authenticity by answering the following trivia questions:

  • The minarets were built by:
    • John Galen Howard
    • Koutoubia
    • Almohads
    • extra-terrestrials
  • The minaret is used to:
    • announce the sunrise
    • count the minutes
    • call faithful to prayer
    • sell books
