The second day of our 10 days tour from Casablanca. Today, we’ll spend some time in Morocco’s capital, Rabat, and see its key attractions. We would, for example, pay a visit to the Hassan Tower, a minaret that was designed to be the world’s largest and tallest. The plan, however, did not come to fruition since its creator, Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansur died. We would next proceed to the fortified Kasbah of Udayas, a Moroccan world heritage site. We could go find the Chellah if we had more time. It was initially inhabited by Phoenicians before becoming a Roman site.
Following our visit to Rabat, we will drive to one of our tour’s key locations. Chefchaouen, often known as Morocco’s blue gem, is located in the northern Rif highlands. There are two primary stories behind the blue hue that covers the majority of the city’s walls, doorways, and streets. The first, and most prevalent, is that the Jews who used to reside there used to paint their houses Blue in order to be closer to heaven and god. Because the hue signifies the sky, which is closer to God to them. Second, some claim that the ancient residents of the city painted it that way to keep insects away. Above all, this custom is still alive and well, with modern residents painting their walls blue nearly every year.
When we arrive, you will have the opportunity to explore the city and learn about its key attractions. We may highlight the Utath-Lhmam plaza, the Kasbah mosque, and the historic souks here. Furthermore, the whole city is an attraction in and of itself, with several photo opportunities.
