Morocco has an incredibly rich history and remnants of its past can be found in every town and city across the kingdom. In fact, there are nine places in Morocco designated by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites – this list includes the spectacular Medina of Fez, the archaeological site of Volubis and the Ksar of Aït Benhaddou – and there are another dozen on the waiting list.
But that’s only a fraction of the story; Morocco’s fascinating heritage can be found in buildings in every town and city, in the festivals, in the customs and traditions, and in the Moroccan people themselves.
There’s probably nowhere else like Chefchaouen in the world. From a distance it looks like most other north Moroccan towns, full of square buildings huddled together on a mountainside. When you get up-close however, its uniqueness stands out. The place is blue. Not just the occasional building, almost the whole town.
Casablanca is possibly Morocco’s most famous city, only rivalled by Marrakech, but you can put all black and white thoughts of Bogart and Bergman aside; this is a living, breathing city that will draw you to its heart.
Fez is an Imperial City that has stood in the north of Morocco for a thousand years. Within its dusty walls you’ll find the place where old Morocco still exists – in the elaborate architecture, the historic Medina and the throngs of people that make their home here.
Marrakech too has stood for close to a thousand years, a city of history and culture. One of the most evocative places in the world, just the name itself conjures up images of this cultural melting pot – sandstone buildings, dusty streets and towering minarets against deep blue skies immediately spring to mind.
Ouarzazate has stood at the edge of the Sahara Desert for hundreds years. A town of palm trees, sandy streets and blocky, fort-like buildings, this is the Morocco seen in a hundred movies. You can immerse yourself in Tangier, one of the most evocative places in the whole country which name immediately conjures up images of an exotic city – dusty white buildings under a hot sun blazing down from a clear blue sky, the gateway to a mysterious land of unfamiliar people and situations.
Morocco beckons – answer the call.
