Stretching from the shores of the Atlantic to the sands of the Sahara, a natural beauty only matched by its stunning architecture, this is Morocco – Al-Mamlakat al-Maghribiyyah – “The Western Kingdom”.
Since the ancients, it has always served as a portal between Europe and Africa and ever since the Umayyad Caliphate conquered the region in the 7th century, it has been a major centre in the Islamic Civilisation producing poets, sages and classical works throughout the generations til today, through its ancient university, Al-Karaouine, in Fez.
From the ports of Tangier to the souks of Marrekesh and mountains of Chefchaouen, a visit to Morocco is as much a feast for the soul as it is for the senses.
