Best places to visit in Morocco
Best places to visit in Morocco that we would recommend as basics for your trip:
Erg Chebbi dunes in the Merzouga desert
Sahara is the jewel of Morocco. You would never imagine something more beautiful. The orange of the sand of the great dunes of Merzouga is a color that will make you fall in love.
And even more, the emotion of listening to the silence. It embraces you when you enter into this paradise. The sensation of perceiving its magic that will remain forever. It’s also the pleasure of the night in a campsite, with the fire crackling under the stars.
With their smile, the Berbers of the desert, will capture you for their simplicity and their charming lifestyle. A warm welcome to travelers from which to learn.
Djemaa El Fna Square in Marrakech
Our second choice is the Djemaa El Fna square and indeed the whole Marrakech. This theater is the epicenter of all tourism activity in Morocco. It is an earthquake in your heart that will transfer you to the one thousand and one nights tale.
The red city has developed itself as the greatest exponent of well-being in Morocco. Its riads and hotels are a sublyme attraction by themselves, as this is, in fact, the case throughout the country. Moroccan hospitality among palm trees and an atmosphere of chic and trendy design.
Koutoubia, Bahia and Badi palaces, or the Madrassa Ben Youssef and Majorelle Gardens are other musts in the city.
The blue of Chaouen
The third, as we love the colors of Morocco, it has to be for the blue of Chaouen. Worldwide recognised. How could you miss it? Even if the visit can only be a short walk through its alleys, being immersed in the peaceful different types of blue is absolutely worth it. Chefchaouen will reward you with inspirational views and the best selfies in front of its moroccan doors.
Fes and Meknes
The choice in the order of the rest would be upon your preferences. The historical city of Fes and her less known sister Meknes, are imperial cities you must visit. Its “grandeur” of ancient times gives them an aura of the richness that still you flavour in its air. Life in their medinas, although impacted by tourism, has been preserved paradoxically thanks to it.
Learning the culture of Morocco is visiting their medinas and most important buildings. Al-Qarawiyyin in Fes is the most ancient library and first university in the world. The mausoleum of Moulay Ismail and the ruins of Volubilis are two must spots to visit.
Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca
The mosque Hassan II of Casablanca will give you the idea of how important religion is to the moroccan . To hear several times a day the call to the prayer for the muslims in every corner wherever you are in Morocco gives a sense of spirituality in your trip experience.
But the mosque, built as the biggest in Africa, distills it in every detail and to perceive the sacred homage.
The mosque is situated over the sea and stands out over all the metropol. The economic city has nothing to do with the one of the film, but you can visit the emulation of Rick’s café.
Rabat and Tangier
Rabat and Tangier are two classy cities, both with new marinas that give a luxury ambience in their face to the sea. In Rabat, the capital full of gardens, the treasure is the magnificent Chellah, and the Tower Hassan II and mausoleum. In Tangier, the attraction is the international influences and the arabic style on the modern buildings.
An anonymous berber village and a nomad tent
Both have the powerful essence of authenticity. The rural and the nomad life reminds us of the essential. Things that a lot of people have begun to appreciate with our confinations.
