Morocco Tourist Attractions and Travel

Morocco is lying in the northwest of Africa, lapped by the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

Going through the center of Casablanca, the capital of Morocco, we find ourselves in a forest of buildings in glass and cement. With more than four million inhabitants, Casablanca is the industrial and financial center of Morocco.

 

Mohammed V Square is the heart of the city and the symbol of modernization of the country. The metropolis attracts a steady flow of immigrants from the countryside who find opportunities for work. Thus, streets of Casablanca present a peculiar mixture of the super-modern and ancestral tradition.

The mosque of Ben Youssef stands out against the uniform panorama of Marakech. Marakech's focal point and a great outdoor theatre is the square of Jemaa-el-Fna.The square is the customary meeting place for the Morocco travel city's inhabitants.

The mellah, which was the main Jewish quarter in Morocco. Afer 1956, the year of the declaration of independence of modern Morocco, almost all the 16,000 Jews of Marraken emigrated, leaving the quarter of the Muslims.Majuro

The mellah is a neighborhood of essentially local importance: everyday products, including spices, pulses and cereals, are sold in its shops and from its open-air stalls.

We are in the area of the dyers, one of the most picturesque and photographed parts of the Morocco tourism city.

The dyes used are often vegetable or mineral origin - and therefore natural - like poppy, saffron and quartzite.

The souk is divided into many different zones which are called after the products that are made or sold there. Some have made-up names, like the souk of the donkeys, so called because it's where they manufacture and sell panniers and carrier-baskets.

 

In the evening, Jemaa-el-Fna square turns into a huge open-air restaurant. Improvised stalls offer the hundred delicious specialities of Morroccan cuisine. The acrid smell of lamb kebabs and the sweet smell of cakes soaked in honey predominate over everything else.

Fez, which is enclosed inside its circle of walls, covers the sides of a hill with its Morocco attractions houses, mosques, palaces and markets, so that there are significant differences in level between one quarter and another.

The Bab Boujeloud gate stands out from the other gates of the old city because of the bright color of its enamel covering. The main commercial street that leads to the medina starts from here.

Fez became the capital of the kindom at the beginning of the 9th century. The elegant and sophisticated gates of Fez, the details on the balconies and the windows and the ceramic decorations of the Morocco Tourist Attractions mosques are presenting how splendid it was during a couple of hundreds years.
