TopTHINGS TO DO IN MOROCCO

 

In ancient times, the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians and the Romans ruled there, and in the Middle Ages and Modern times, the Arab states of the Maghreb had to endure several waves of European expansion. Modern Morocco is a synthesis of cultures, a melting pot where Islamic traditions are intertwined with the beliefs of the Tuareg nomads and the legacy of the French colonists.

Many architectural sites in Morocco, even entire neighborhoods of ancient cities in the country are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are a variety of tourist destinations: from beach holidays on the coasts of Agadir, Tangier and Casablanca to hiking in the Atlas Mountains. The forts, mosques, palaces and museums of Fez, Marrakech and Rabat also draw many travelers. You can do the 3 days tour.

Here are the famous Djema el-Fna square, the Ali Ben Yusuf mosque, the palace of the Grand Vizier Palais Bahia and luxurious sultan’s tombs. In the maze of narrow streets of the medina hides artisanal workshops and shops, and at night there are musicians, delighting your ears with the melodic sounds of rebaba.

ADMIRE THE MINARETS OF FEZ

In the twelfth century, under the rulers of the Maghreb, the Almoravids, Fez became the cultural and religious center of North Africa. The Bab Dekaken and Bab Boudjeloud gates, erected centuries ago, still guard the entrance to the ancient part of the city. The muezzin of the Karawin Mosque calls the faithful to prayer. As ten centuries ago, the dyers’ market bustles here, and men with gray beards drink Moroccan mint tea and engage in unhurried conversation.

TO SEE THE “BLUE WONDER” ON THE SLOPES OF THE ER-RIF

One of the most beautiful cities in Morocco – Chefchaouen – is able to captivate any tourist at first sight. Its architecture has preserved its original appearance since its founding, so it seems as if the time itself is frozen in the stone facades, mosaic arches of windows and paved squares. Virtually all of the city’s walls are painted in piercing shades of blue and blue, creating a whimsical play of light in the narrow, picturesque streets.

In Phoenician and Roman times the city of Essaouira was an important point of maritime trade. Caravans arriving from the Sahara and ships arriving from distant countries stopped here. Its name means “how beautiful” in Arabic. Today, tourists come to Essaouira to taste the delicious dishes in the fish restaurants, visit museums and exhibitions, go surfing and attend the Gnaoua Festival of expressive music.

VISIT THE EARTHEN FORTRESS OF AYT-BEN-HADDOU

Built in the 11th century to protect the caravan route from Marrakech to Timbuktu. By the mid-twentieth century, this trade route had lost its importance. The population gradually left Ait-Ben-Haddou, and the fortress became a favorite location for shooting Hollywood epics. Scenes from “Lawrence of Arabia”, “The Pearl of the Nile”, “The Mummy”, “Alexander”, “Gladiator” and other famous films were filmed here.

FEEL THE BURNING BREATH OF THE DESERT

The Gorge is best known for mesmerizing scenery and the Kasbahs set precariously amongst it overlooking the river below.
