Highlights of Morocco
Founded almost 1,000 years ago on the edge of the Sahara, Marrakech is a historical and cultural melting pot. What was once a southern market town, is now a bustling city and UNESCO Heritage site with a rich artisan heritage, a fascinating religion and spectacular shopping souqs. Marrakech is bursting with architectural wonders including the exquisite gardens, elaborate mosques and a wonderful mix of Amazigh, Arabic and Moorish architecture. The lively souqs are the highlight of Marrakech, each one a whirlwind of vibrant colour, noise and enticing scents. The Medina (a UNESCO Heritage Centre) is the best place to shop with its splendid abundance of crowded souks. The market stalls sell everything from brightly coloured spices to richly woven rugs and a thousand other exotic goods in between; seeing the locals haggle for the best price and the stall owners compete for customers is an experience in itself.
The bright, laidback port city of Essaouira boasts lovely beaches, a calm harbour, great food, a charming culture and friendly locals. Due to its strong coastal winds, Essaouira is often bypassed by the flock of beach tourists who journey to the Atlantic coast each summer meaning it has perfectly maintained its traditional culture and admirable character. The pretty blue and white Medina is enclosed by massive stone walls and imposing stone gates known as Babs; this fortress was built by the Portuguese in 1506. Each year, Essaouira’s waves and strong winds attracts plenty of windsurfers whereas other tourists travel to this tranquil hub for the popular music and art scene.
People travel from all over the world to enjoy the superb beaches and relaxed culture of Agadir. After being rebuilt following the devastating 1960 earthquake, seaside city is now Morocco’s premier beach resort and a real gem on the countries coastline. As well as relaxing on the soft white-sand beach, tourists can head to the port and watch the fishermen reel in the daily catch, hike to the fascinating remains of the 16th-century Kasbah or haggle for bargains are the souks. Agadir is close to the majestic range of the Anti-Atlas and Sahara making it a great place to discover some of Morocco’s most spectacular natural sights.
Fez is a truly unique city that manages to transport its visitors back in time as they walk through the blue gate of Bab Boujeloud to the narrow, quaint streets of Fez el-Bali. This medina is the oldest part of the city and is a UNESCO World Heritage site as well as the world’s largest car-free urban space. Keep an open mind as you stroll through 1,300 years of Moroccan heritage; see donkeys hard at work, hear the laughter of children playing along the street and witness the splendour of Islamic architecture as you pass ancient mosques and medersas. Each year in June, the city's squares and streets come alive with music from around the world as the popular Sacred Music Festival takes over.
Stretching across 600 miles of Morocco, the Atlas Mountains are North Africa’s highest mountain range and contain some of the most beautiful Moroccan regions. The Atlas Mountains establish an outstanding contrast between the boiling Sahara and the milder coast of Morocco, in fact, during the winter months (November to April) the mountain range is covered in snow paving the way for a number of ski resorts. Renowned for their remarkable beauty, the Atlas Mountain’s are North Africa’s most popular trekking destination and thankfully you don’t have to be a serious mountaineer to hike to the impressive peaks.
Journey deep into the real Moroccan countryside and arrive in Erfoud; a haven situated in the centre of Tafilalet which features traditional houses and a warm, friendly atmosphere. This oasis has been the setting of films such as The Mummy and the 2015 James Bond film SPECTRE due to the surrounding beauty of the Sahara Desert. If you are visiting Morocco in October, you may witness Erfoud’s Guetna celebrations – three days of celebrations, music, folk dances and competitions to celebrate the end of the harvesting period.
