Morocco has so much to see and do that deciding where to go can be a difficult task. To help you narrow down your options, 10 destinations in Morocco are worth visiting.
The Rif mountains, where one of Morocco's prettiest towns can be found, are perfect for ambling through its blue-colored houses, Since it is a bit far from the larger cities, Chefchaouen is a great place to stroll around and take photographs. Prices are higher here than in the cities, so I wouldn't recommend it for shopping (you won't be hassled as much as you would in the cities!). It's a great spot to unwind. The blue town has a peaceful atmosphere.
The Koutoubia Mosque’s minaret is the most perfectly proportioned structure in Almohad architecture in North Africa, and simple but beautifully designed. The Koutoubia Mosque was constructed during the 12th century, a time when Hispano-Moresque artistry was noted for its simple elegance and masterful craftsmanship, by the Almohad dynasty. It took them 40 years to build the Koutoubia in 1150.
You can enjoy a range of outdoor activities and beautiful panoramic views throughout the year in this area of the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains, but the experience is especially memorable in the cooler months.
Make sure to visit these falls if you visit just one in Morocco. This location features cafes that hang over the water, producing a dramatic sight as water cascades into pools below. Ouzoud Falls can be visited all year long. It is much busier during summer, but if you want to swim in the pools at the bottom of the falls, that is the best time to go.
The most significant ancient sites and old markets are hidden in the winding streets of Fez, the most comprehensive medieval city in the Arab world. Medersa Bou Inania, which is decorated with exquisite mosaics, is one of them. Fez's medina is a maze of streets and alleys packed with local craftsmen selling colorful pottery, rugs, and leather goods (for which the city is renowned). The medina is enclosed by high stone walls and fortified gates.
The El Glaoui family effectively ruled much of the surrounding area from Telouet Kasbah in Morocco from the late nineteenth until the early twentieth century. Shortly, the kasbah was abandoned when Thami El Glaoui, known as the ‘Lord of the Atlas,’ joined forces with French colonizers to attempt to permanently remove Sultan Mohammed V from power.
the former North African enclave of Spain along the Atlantic coast is now part of the southwestern region of Morocco. The location of Sidi Ifni appears to be frozen in time, making it an excellent starting point for a short overnight hike or hike to discover the nearby Berber villages. Because of its proximity to the Atlantic, Ifni is known as "the Sahara gateway to the Atlantic." Fishing is one of Ifni's most important industries, particularly for sardines, soles, sea bream, bass, and tuna. Tourism is also growing in this location thanks to its many strengths. It is close to several popular beaches such as Legzira, Mirleft, Sidi Ouarzig, and White Beach, which draw surfers in the summer and winter.
Casablanca, Morocco's western port city and commercial hub, fronts the Atlantic Ocean. Its Mauresque architecture, a fusion of Moorish style and European art deco design is a reminder of the city's French colonial heritage. The Hassan II Mosque, which stands over water, is a prominent example of the design style.
The old city, or medina, of Asilah, a town on Morocco’s Atlantic coast south of Tangier, is enclosed by well-preserved 15th-century ramparts and gates built by the Portuguese. The medina is an art hub where one can find murals and the Moussem Culturel International Delilah, a yearly festival. The Hassan II Rencontres Internationales Exhibition and the Palais Raissouni, an early-20th-century building, are among the venues.
Marrakech, a key regional hub in western Morocco, is home to mosques, palaces, and gardens. The medina is a tightly packed, medieval walled city dating back to the Berber Empire, where bustling souqs (markets) sell traditional textiles, pottery, and jewelry. The Koutoubia Mosque's Moorish minaret, a prominent symbol of the city and visible from miles away, is a monument to the city.
