Morocco Sightseeing

Morocco is a land of many cultures. With its vibrant Arabic culture, French influences, unusual architecture, and gorgeous landscapes, this country is a big draw for anyone looking for something a little different from your typical Euro-trip. 

If you’re starting out in Marrakech, prepare yourself for a few busy days. This diverse city has much to explore: the Old Town (Medina), the New Town (Gueliz), and the Palmeraie Grove all have very different vibes, but each district is beautiful. Enjoy the historical Bahia Palace, and the Essaadienne Tombs. Relax in the Menara Gardens, or the Marjorelle Garden owned by Yves Saint Laurent. Spend some time shopping in the Souks, for everything from handmade bags to home furnishings. You’ll love the scent of mingled spices, tea, and incense.

On the other side of the spectrum, a desert trip is highly recommended for any Morocco sightseeing trip. The Sahara is an inspirational experience at night, with the stars gleaming in all their glory. Cross the High Atlas Mountains and visit some Berber villages before settling into the desert. Here you’ll find a riverside oasis and barren hillsides clustered with Kasbahs.  See the Valley of the Roses, with views of the Dades Valley. Don’t pass up an opportunity to spend time at the dunes of Erg Chebbi, either. They’re reputably some of the highest sand dunes in the world. The Fes desert is also a stunning place to spend some time, as is the Merzouga area.

If you’re more interested in the mountain landscapes, visiting the Ourika Valley in the High Atlas Mountains is a must-do. It’s green year-round and is cut through by the Oued river. Many valleys can be found along the side of the hills, and this lush landscape is full of irrigating fields and orchards. Visit Setti Fatma, a small village with lots of trekking opportunity. A friendly local may even point you in the direction of the cascading seven waterfalls.

Casablanca, made famous by the film, is well worth your time. Explore Hassan 2nd Mosque, with the world’s tallest minaret at 210 metres high. Stop at Mohammed V Square, surrounded by art deco buildings. Walk around the Old Town to rub shoulders with the locals, and shop for some wares. Sit at a café on La Corniche, sipping coffee and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. You might forget you’re even in Morocco!

Then there’s Tangier, home to Cape Spartel where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. See the coast of Cadix, where the battle of Trafalgar took place. See the caves of Hercules. Visit the souks, and enjoy Morocco’s traditional cuisine. Finally, there’s Essaouira, a town that’s famous for its blue buildings and fishing boats. If blue is your favourite colour, this is the place for you! End your day on the beach, dining on fresh fish and enjoying the views.
