Tangier is located in the south of Morocco. It is a lovely city with many unique and historical sights and attractions. Furthermore, it overlooks two seafronts, making it an important commercial and strategic side in the Moroccan monarchy.
This city has a lot to offer in terms of things to do and see. We discuss the American Legation, the first structure constructed by the United States outside of its borders, the ancient Kasbah museum, which is a former Sultan’s Palace, and the medina, which has many streets and tiny alleyways that depict the city’s past.
Chefchaouen, also known as Chaouen or the Blue Pearl of Morocco, is a lovely city in Morocco’s northwest Rif Mountains, not far from Tangier and Tetouan. It is well-known for its stunning blue walls and winding alleyways. There are several hypotheses on the origin of the blue color. According to the most common legend, Moorish and Jewish refugees from Spain founded the city in 1471 and painted it blue. The color blue represents the sky.
You will be delighted by its architecture, colorful sides, and attractions as you wander through its streets. Because of its beauty, it is one of the most frequented destinations in the entire country.
The rich history of Fes, Morocco’s historic capital, has endowed it with two “old medinas” at the same time. Fes el-Jedid, on the other hand, is home to the Royal Palace, the Jewish Cemetery, and the Boujeloud Gardens. Fes el Bali, on the other hand, has the world’s most perplexing medina, with 14 gates, 6,000 streets, 200 mosques, and 180 hammams.
It is not just the oldest of the four imperial cities and Morocco’s fourth-biggest metropolis. It is also a testament to three eras at the same time, as seen largely by the old city’s architectural look. Fes, like many historical cities, is positioned relatively far from the ocean, thus the ideal months to visit are April-May or October-November. It is when the weather is pleasant and you can roam about the city to your heart’s delight.
Motorized vehicles are forbidden across the broad region of the Fes medina. Donkeys, carriers, and bicycles are the wave of the future.
Merzouga is a tiny hamlet in Morocco’s southeast. It is unquestionably the most picturesque desert in the nation, with largely dry and gentle dunes. Furthermore, her cottages and tents are located at the foot of Erg Chebbi, a massive (50 by 5 km) complex of dunes up to 350 meters high. There is no built infrastructure, and civilization consists of a few stores, cafés, and restaurants. Most visitors to Merzouga come to experience the true Berber way of life, not to relax on the plush feather mattresses of the hotel suites.
This lovely community has a plethora of activities and sights to see. To begin, you can take a camel ride into the desert and spend the night in Berber tents. It is a one-of-a-kind experience that allows you to appreciate the magnificence of the Sahara desert. You may also go to Sri Lanka to see the lake. It is where migratory birds such as flamingos and ducks spend some of their time. You may also visit the village of Khamlia to listen to Gnaoua music and learn about its people’s history. All of these activities, as well as many others, will be available to you as part of our 9-day Morocco itinerary.
Todgha and Dades gorges:
The majority of visitors that visit Morocco go to view the two stunning gorges Todgha and Dades, which were formed by the rivers of the same names and are located close. The tallest cliffs of Dades Gorges soar to more than a kilometer in height, and this is the most picturesque gorge for driving or riding a motorbike. In addition, these gorges have a strange rock structure known as “Monkey’s Fingers,” which rises immediately from the Dades River and mimics the aforementioned monkey’s outstretched hand.
The Todgha Gorges are located approximately 15 kilometers from the city of Tinghir, and the road leading there is winding, with Berber houses constructed in the shadow of the omnipresent palmary. A guarded road runs through the gorges, which are around 18 kilometers long. The fissure is just a few meters long at its narrowest point, yet the rocks above it climb to a reasonable height. Despite this, daring Moroccans may slip in with their kiosks of all sorts of items, causing minor traffic bottlenecks on the busiest days.
Ouarzazate is a city in northern Morocco, amid the Atlas Mountains and the Draa River. It was created in 1928 as the French Foreign Legion’s southern military post. Several centuries ago, there existed an ancient Berber citadel, whose old walls and cannons still bear witness to the intense conflicts of French colonialism in the 1990s. The historic strongholds aTodgha Gorges are located approximately 15 kilometers from the city of Tinghir, and the approach to them travels via winding roads with Berber houses constructed in the shadow of the omnipresent palmary. A guarded road runs through the gorges, which are around 18 kilometers long. The fissure is just a few meters long at its narrowest point, yet the rocks above it climb to a reasonable height.
Despite this, daring Moroccans may slip in with their kiosks of all sorts of items, causing minor traffic bottlenecks on the busiest days.
UNESCO designated the area around Ouarzazate as a human heritage site.
Berbers used to reside in this city quite a while ago. They built a minor castle near Ouarzazate in the 11th century. The castle, or Kasbah, was continually increasing, and a tiny population of Moroccan Jews even settled there in the 17th century. Today, the Kasbah of Tifoultoute is home to only 11 households. However, it was this stronghold that became the principal point of pilgrimage for many film teams.
Today, Ouarzazate and its environs have become the epicenter of Morocco’s burgeoning film industry. The stunning vistas and still-inhabited remains of ancient towns draw filmmakers like a magnet. This is where the fifth season of the American TV program Prison Break and one of Game of Thrones’ last seasons were shot. In the once-forgotten town, an international airport was even created.
Ait Ben Haddou:
The Kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou erected 10 centuries ago, still survives in a settlement of the same name, thirty kilometers from the city of Ouarzazate in southern Morocco, with its walls and mud towers, small windows, and narrow and winding alleyways. It clings to the slope of a wide plateau overlooking the Ounila River admirably.
Since 1987, the Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou has been designated as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). It is an architectural structure with several stories and vaults. It also covers an area of 1,300 square meters and is divided into several tiny alleyways of varying lengths and widths that are linked in a distinctive geometric design.
Marrakech is the Moroccan East’s spirit and heart. It was once the country’s capital. The city is located at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, approximately a 3-4 hours drive from Casablanca and Agadir. Every year, tourists from all around the world visit. The Medina’s heart, Jemaa el Fna, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The entire historic district of the city is an open-air museum. Not to add the Yusuf Ibn Tashfin Mausoleum, the Golden Apples Mosque, and the Bahia Palace are nearby. Medina is home to a plethora of tiny, intimate cafés and eateries. They are incredibly reasonable, with good and inexpensive cuisine.
On the streets, you might see people dressed up as if they were from an Arabian fairy tale. Acrobats and snake charmers act like they did hundreds of years ago.
The market quarter is popular with both Europeans and locals since everything here is genuine and original. This is not a tourist attraction, but rather a life itself. An artist may apply henna patterns to your hands, while stores sell hundreds of gifts in a variety of styles, including lamps, rugs, and jewelry.
You should visit Marrakech’s environs. To the south of the city, there are Berber villages where people live as they did several years ago. The inhabitants rely solely on subsistence farming. If you go east from Marrakech, you will discover cascades of breathtaking splendor.
