THE MEDINA OF TETOUAN
Tetouan was particularly important as the principal crossroads between Morocco and Andalusia throughout the Islamic era. Our 7 days tour from Tetouan will take you to explore the dove city before it ends in Marrakech. From the 8th century onwards. The city was rebuilt following the Reconquest by refugees who had been forced out of the area by the Spanish.
This may be observed in the architecture and art, which are heavily influenced by Andalusian culture.
It is one of Morocco’s smaller medinas, but it is unquestionably the most intact, with the bulk of its structures unaffected by outside influences.
Tetouan’s medina is enclosed by an ancient wall that stretches for roughly 5 kilometers and has seven gates.
The urban grid is defined by main arteries that connect the gates and provide access to open spaces (squares and plazas) and monuments of collective interest, such as fondouks, mosques, zaouias, and neighborhoods intended for crafts and commerce, on the one hand, and secondary roads leading to dead ends and residential blocks that serve as semi-private spaces, on the other.
The historic northeastern entrance of Tetouan’s medina, Bab Sebta, connects to a neighboring cemetery.
The earliest complex zawiya, the Zaouia Al Harraria, was erected in 1828 for Sidi Mohammed el-Harrak just within the medina, at the top of a series of steps.
The tanneries are on the right, near the wall of the Jewish cemetery: a must-see.
Then let yourself be directed around the staggered alleys of this flat, sunny area of the medina to the discovery of numerous artisans.
The cultural, Fes.
Fez, Morocco’s historic capital, has two “old cities” – medinas – because to its rich past. Fez el Jdid is home to the royal palace, the Jewish cemetery, and the Boujeloud Gardens. Fez el Bali, with 14 gates, 6,000 lanes, 200 mosques, and 180 hammams, is the world’s most perplexing medina.
Fez is the fourth biggest city in Morocco and the oldest of the four imperial cities. It is also a testament to three ages, as seen by the old city’s architectural look. Fes, like many other historical cities, is located far from the ocean, thus the ideal months to visit are April-May or October-November, when the weather is pleasant and you can stroll about the city taking in the sights.
On the whole large expanse of the Fes medina, driving motorized vehicles is prohibited. Donkeys, porters, and bikers have a bright future ahead of them!
Merzouga Sahara desert
The Sahara Desert is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Morocco. Southern Morocco is home to this massive desert. One of the desert’s entry places is Merzouga. Merzouga isn’t that intriguing, and you won’t want to spend much time there. This is the area, though, from where you will go to the Erg Chebbi desert (part of the Sahara).
