Filled with long beaches, natural beauty and Islamic monuments, the country is a tourist attraction. With a remarkable mix of economic progress and modernity, Morocco has become an impeccable model for neighboring countries. Let's go out in different parts of Morocco in search of ancient traditions and cultural patterns.

Casablanca

Casablanca is one of the most spectacular cities in Morocco. The color of the houses in the city is almost white. The Hassan Mosque in Casablanca is one of the most spectacular mosques in the world. Its minaret is the tallest of all the mosques in the world (689 feet). The mosque is made of red sandstone. It was designed by French architect Michel Panso. The floor of the prayer room inside the mosque is made of glass. Millions of people can pray together inside and outside the mosque.

The Kings Palace located here is a place of interest. The palace bears a unique example of Islamic architecture. Among other places of interest, the ancient church built in 1930, the Corniche beach, all the sights have made the city a tourist attraction.

Rabat

The coastal city of Rabat is the capital of Morocco. The weather here is always good as it is by the sea. The main roads in the city are one-way and wide, so there is no traffic jam. The most interesting place of Rabat is Kasbah Udaya. The word ‘Kasbah’ means ‘fortress’. The clear blue of the Atlantic Ocean is reflected on the walls of city houses. And there is white color with blue. In the old part of this walled city, the streets are made up of various alleys.

In the wilderness on the way to the city of Rabat;

The Portuguese were in the planning of these roads. This is mainly done to keep the houses cool in hot weather. Being a country in Africa, you can see a lot of trees here, which is really unimaginable. In July-August the temperature here rises to 45 degrees. And that's why this arrangement has been made to prevent the sun from entering many alleys on purpose. Most of the houses in this city were built in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The construction style of the houses presents the ancient architecture to the tourists.

Volubilis

The city, built in the third century, was once occupied by the Roman Empire. And for this, various ancient Roman architectures will be seen all over the city. These ruins are evidence of the expansion of the Roman Empire at a time when only barbarians ruled these areas before the arrival of the Muslims. Despite being a World Heritage Site, the city has been neglected. Different types of crops are produced in the fertile land here. The raw material of olive oil produced here is exported to Rome, which is contributing to the economic prosperity of the country.

Many examples of Roman architecture are scattered throughout Volubilis;

Mule Idris

Idris is the next destination of Valubilis. The view of the city from the top of the hill is impeccable. The mosque founded by Mule Idris, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the lap of the Atlas Mountain in 69 AD, is one of the five most important mosques in the world. The place is well known as a big holy place for Muslims. Every year in August, Muslim pilgrims from different parts of the world flock to Mulay Idris.

The houses of the inhabitants of the city were then the unopened gates of the tourists. The people of this city are living by religion. The city has no splendor, but who loses him in tradition? Each door of the house is like a pattern. Extraordinary mosaic work on the wall. The donkey is the only means of transportation in the hilly alleys of Mule Idris. The various shops here offer a wide range of exquisite workmanship of camel skins and yarn made by members of the Barbar tribe.

Handicraft Capital, Phase

Fez is the third largest city in Morocco, the old capital of Morocco. The city has a good reputation as a handicraft capital. Al-Karaouin, the oldest university in the world, is located here.

Al-Karawin, the oldest university in the world;

The main attraction of the phase is the walled Medina (market). The Medina of Fez is Morocco's largest and oldest and the largest urban area in the world. Narrow roads, ancient crowded houses, no cars. So walking or donkey stuff to travel inside the medina.

Qutubiya Mosque;

Like Fez, there is an old medina here, with its alleys. There are many interesting handicrafts available here. Hundreds of food stalls in a large square in the middle of Medina. You can suddenly find a miraculous lamp shop in the alleys of Medina. Copper, bronze handicrafts will bow in reverence for those unknown artists.

This is Benhadu

A one-day round trip from Marrakesh is a sight to behold. Benhadu is a city built on a hill with mud houses and earthen forts. Here is the village of barbarians built in the eleventh century. Green valleys and mile after mile of red rough soil and canyons, look a lot like the Grand Canyon.

It is located near the foothills of the Atlas Mountains;

The nearest town to the region or the village surrounded by the rugged Atlas Mountains - everywhere the ancient tradition seems to be moving forward hand in hand. Suddenly it seems that it has been picked up from the Arabian night and put down. Many Hollywood films, from Lawrence of Arabia to Gladiators and Prince of Persia, have been shot here. The entire city has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The port city of Esauira

The port city of Esau, on the Atlantic side west of Morocco, is a little different from the rest of the cities. Fishing is the main livelihood of the residents here. Rows and rows of blue boats and medium-sized launches along the seashore. Early in the morning, the fishermen go out to catch fish and at the end of the day they come and collect various species of fish like sardines, bonito, tuna fish etc.

Tetowan

This old port city is built on the reef mountains on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, just north of Morocco. The history-rich city continues to bear witness to eye-catching, heartwarming historical and traditional Arab towns. The importance of the city was immense during the Muslim rule in Spain from the 8th century onwards.

The old port city of Tetouan, north of Morocco;

The city was used as the only link between Morocco and Andalusia. And because of its geographical proximity, Spanish influence over Tetouan language and culture is more noticeable than French. The houses in the city are all white. Seen from a distance, it looks like a huge tent on a hill covered with a sheet of white concrete. Notable among the sights here are Cabo Negro Beach, Reef Mountains, Archaeological Museum, Myrtle Medina Market.

Among the other sights of Morocco, the Marjouga Desert, bordering the Algerian border, is another unique desert. Tourists get lost in the traditional folk music of traveling on camels, watching the sunset, in the dunes of 350 meters high and 50 kilometers wide. In addition, the city of Maken, Sidi Ifni, Asilah beach, Tadra George, Darah valley, etc. in the west of the Atlas Mountains are impeccable.
