In these lands where several dynasties succeeded one another, you will discover remains of the greatest Mediterranean civilizations. In the north of the country, the Roman ruins of Volubilis stand. In Rabat, pieces of architecture are evidence of the ancient French presence. Everywhere else, there are several treasures tracing the Muslim civilizations: the Kasbah of the Oudayas, the green expanses of the Menara gardens. Between sea and mountains, desert sands and green plains, eye-popping panoramas are displayed to shower you with tranquility and natural beauty; enchanting vivid pictures with the richness of a brawling culture transport you into a most raw nature.

Morocco, a melting pot of dynasties and cultures:

Each country has its own history: historical facts, events and important milestones that gave the country its true historical value. 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. Morocco is one of the go-to destinations for discovery lovers, the most fascinated by nature, history, the art of living and Moroccan hospitality. The experience gained during their journeys in Morocco leave them pleasantly satisfied with their stay.

Couscous, Tajine, Pastilla, Mrouzia, and R'fissa, are some of the emblematic dishes of the country that you can’t resist. Subtly composed of a wide variety of striking flavours and scents, Moroccan cuisine draws its originality from a combination between Berber, Arab-Andalusian, and Jewish culinary traditions. Thanks to its rich cultural heritage specific to each region, Morocco has built an undisputed reputation worldwide.

Morocco : Long-standing traditions blend seamlessly with modernity

Morocco is undoubtedly been able to preserve its traditions and make its cultural heritage prosper through generations, using them as levers for development. In Marrakech, the Medina and its magnetic souks shower you with its traditionnal side, while Guéliz and Hivernage offer the most modern facilities and infrastructure. Far from being antagonistic, the combination of modernity and tradition embodies the true strength of Morocco. Leaving the old medina where the history of Marrakech takes hold of all the architectural details, you’ll discover modern districts. Grand boulevards, European-style buildings in ochre color charm its visitors. In a notable contrast with the old medina, the districts of Gueliz and the Hivernage give the city another level of fascination : a more modern, lively and revolutionary aspect. Gueliz, which is the beating heart of the city, is the business district. As you walk along its boulevards, you will find a Western-style setting: the headquarters of banks and companies.

Ecological tourism in Morocco

Nowadays, many tourists tick-off "Eco-Friendly" stays harking back for nature, relaxation, mediation and a total break with the routine. Looking for inner peace and zen moment goes hand-in-hand with nature preservation, for nature being the source of our hapiness. We are always looking for inner peace and this cannot be achieved without the preservation of nature: nature that does us good and protects us! Morocco, in this same context, also seeks to avoid the shortcomings of modernity, particularly in environmental matters, by promoting responsible tourism that impacts the land and the local populations.   SOURCE: VISIT MOROCCO
