Cities of the World MOROCCO Africa
Morocco fulfills fantasies and dreams about the Tales of 1,001 Nights, even today. It is an exotic and romantic country with 1,000 miracles of the Arab world, old cities, mosques, bazaars, natural beauties from palm tree gardens to sand dunes and from the frosty tops of the Atlas Mountains to the beaches of Agadir.
There are the oases in the Sahara, the colorful buildings of Marrakesh, the Anti-Atlas’s green valleys and the forts of the Foreign Legion. The royal cities are all wonderful, Casablanca, well known from the famous movie with the same title, the capital, Rabat, the ancient Fes and the elegant cultural centre, Marrakesh.
The Djemaa el Fna square in Marrakesh has a unique atmosphere, where magicians, henna painters, acrobats, belly dancers, tale tellers from the Sahara, healers, dancers, Koran discussers, snake charmers and cooks make up the colorful market.
Morocco, with its 1,000 faces can be found in the buildings, which are incredibly ornamented, the sound of the snake charmers’ pipes, the silence of the mosques, the native people of the Sahara, the turmoil of the bazaar, the smell of various spices, the pattern of the carpets, the medinas conjuring the past, the taste of the mint tea, and it looks the way we always thought it would.
