The history of a country is one of the events considered worthy of remembrance, which perfectly applies to Morocco. With several dynasties that have succeeded one another over the years: the Idrisside dynasty, the Almoravid dynasty, the Almohad dynasty, the Merinid dynasty, the Saadian dynasty and the Alaouite dynasty, Morocco has gained international consideration as a multicultural country, with several types of heritage recognized as World Heritage by UNESCO.
Chefchaouen, the blue diamond
Built on a mountainside, Chefchaouen is a city with a special vibes. It unique charm gives an impression of unreality. With its blue-rinsed houses, the whole city seems to be bathed in azure. You walk around as if you were in a dream.
More than just an ornament, the beautiful Chefchaouen brims with attractions. Its heritage is rich. The inescapable Medina with its famous narrow winding alleys, is an opportunity to mingle with the local population, and to smell and taste delights: from freshly baked bread, to skillfully prepared tagines. There is also the Kasbah which stands in the middle of the old quarter: its lush gardens, located in the center of the city, are a haven of freshness. Its museum which is home to a collection of old weapons, some photos of the city, and textiles, is a must-see.
Taroudant, another version of Marrakech
Taroudant with its majestic ramparts, is one of the most beautiful towns in Morocco. Stroll in the shade of its walls full of history and whose towers have stood for more than five centuries to protect the ancient capital from the Saadian sultans. All day long, the sun strikes these high stone columns and bathes the city in a light where the gold of its rays blends well with the ochre of the walls.
City of deep-rooted and long-standing history, Taroudant has a lot of stories to tell. Here, the dynamic of modern life blend seamlessly with the traditional heritage. Venture into the middle of its active souks alleys, negotiate with the merchants on the stalls, and discover all the richness of local craftsmanship. Leather is particularly famous, as well as terracotta trinkets and Amazigh jewellery.
