1. Colors and contrasts
Morocco in a country full of colors and contrasts. Wherever you go it will surprise you. If you approach the south, you will see the huge deserts and their earthy tones. In the coastal areas the water is deep and blue. In addition, markets and cities are full of products such as sweets, fruits and vegetables and lively clothing.Morocco - javarman / Shutterstock.com
2. Amazing landscapes
Another reason we love Morocco is because of the beauty of its landscapes. Contrary to what many people believe, this country has a variety of ecosystems that make it have a very rich nature.
You can visit the sand dunes, the mountainous systems of the Atlas, the cedar forests, the arable land and even urban landscapes with their markets and squares full of life and contrasts.
3. The people of the Atlas
Although in Morocco you find very good and friendly people, those in the South of the Atlas are especially nice. Women collect roses that they offer without asking for anything in return when you need their help. The Bedouins are constantly smiling. Of course, careful in Fez, the elderly have a tendency to pinch other people's backs belonging to clueless tourists.
4. Imperial MoroccoFez - alex7370 / Shutterstock.com
There are a number of cities in Morocco that we like especially for its monuments. We speak of the imperial zone of the country, in which the mosques, the walls, the always crowded medieval medinas and its majestic palaces stand out.
Highlights include places like Fez, Meknes or Marrakech.
5. Roman Morocco
The Roman Empire settled around the entire Mediterranean Sea and the territory that Morocco occupies today was no exception. Traces of this remain throughout the country and we have a good example in Volubilis, a settlement of the classical world that is located on the Meknes land.
In addition, of all the imperial cities of Morocco, Meknes is the quietest and least visited by tourism, so it is highly recommended to approach her.
