Fes

 
Fes Caught on a relentless wave, you are carried through slithers of alley-way, dodging donkeys and ducking under enormous baskets of mint as they are carried by on bobbing heads. Either side of your wake, tiny stalls brim over with their wares -- cloth, slippers, pottery, leather, brass. Children weave their way deftly through the legs of their elders; old men with their peaked hoods shadowing their leathery, bearded faces crouch in corners carving bits of wood; and women, shrouded and swathed from head to toe save for their piercing black eyes, hold hands and shuffle through the swarm. This is the underworld of Fes. This is where time chose to stop and rest about two hundred years ago, and never quite got going again...
 

Marrakech

 
Marrakech Marrakech is a city in the grip of a delirious imagination. A feverish dreamscape of honeycombed alleys and minarets quivering in the moonlight and haunted by the restless creatures of a visionary carnival that has lasted for a thousand years and shows no sign of stopping now. Marrakech is one of the worlds enchanted places where time becomes suspended and, through its open door, you catch a glimpse of the past so rich and so remote and yet so palpable. You can sense the atavism propelling every trick and turn in the Djemaa el Fna, Marrakech's pulsating main square and one of the worlds great theatres. The Djemaa is a spectacular pageant of singers, tumblers, sorcerers, herbalists, raconteurs, impostors, preachers and...
 

Essaouira

 
Essaouira The word Essaouira means image. Observed from any angle, Essaouira is a perfect photograph. Behind its purple ramparts and inside its whitewashed medina with blue doors lies a city that has been influenced by various cultures (Berber, Carthaginian, Portuguese, English, Bambara and others). It was the Jewish traders that once formed the majority of the population and it was they who transformed Essaouira into what became Morocco's most prosperous city in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, the creative nature of Essaouira is unveiled in the ateliers of its artisan workers located in recesses under the Skala fortress where Orson Wells filmed most of Othello in 1949. This setting transforms the city's craftsmen into a...
 

Rabat

 
Rabat Pirate stronghold, breakaway republic, Imperial City and today's capital, Rabat has worn many cloaks during its 700 year history.

The city is located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. On the facing shore of the river lies Salé, Rabat's bedroom community. Together the two cities with Temara account for a population of 1.8 million. In addition, tourism and the presence of all foreign embassies in Morocco serve to make Rabat the second most important city in the country after the larger and economically more significant Casablanca. It is accessible by t...

Oued Massa Nature Reserve

 
Oued Massa Nature Reserve When people think of Morocco they think of sprawling whitewashed villages, noisy souks and miles and miles of sand. But Morocco is actually much more varied than that and, in fact, the country is home to dozens of spectacular national parks and nature reserves. Since the 1930s the local government has been improving government law regarding the protection of national parks so that natural areas are better protected against exploitation and environmental encroachment.
