the beauty of Morocco

we going to post some pictures of some most touristy destinations in Morocco. In fact , when you travel in Morocco you see a kind of contrast in terms of culture, architecture also the landscape .So when you have chance to come to Morocco ,we will welcome you warmly and be happy to take you around.
This photo was taken in Chefchoune which is called the Moroccan bleu city.It is a small city in the Rif mounatin , far from from Tanger about 120 Km to the south east. It has an old city which goes back to 1471 and it was founded by the Cherif Moulay Ali Ben Rachid. The old city or the medina , as it is called, has a kind of narrow streets which run up and down the steep sides of Jbel Magou.
Many tourists all year around go to visit this peacful place. It has many things to see like the Tlasmtan National park with its wafterfalls ,Kasabah ,...Etc.

This city is called Essaouira. It is located on the Atlantic ocean coast .This one looks a bite like the bleu city but it is still defferent from it . The old city called Mogador , seems to defy the ocean. In this city the shipyyards trawlers are built by tradtional methods ,using teak and eucalyptus.It has aslo a kind of fascinating souks like on the second picture. you can find leather, wooden crafts, Murex ,the mollusk that scretes a purple dye, carpts and many other things.It is also a good place for shoting movies.

This is an ancient Kasabah called the Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah . It is located in Ourzazar which is called the Moroccan hollywood thanks to its lanscape which very diverse and which is good for making movies. This fortified village has been classified by UNSCO as one of the word's cultural treasures. none knows exactly when this village was built but we are all sure that is is very old and it was already there during the times of camel caravans which goes back to the 11 century . Today it is also a Kasbah which everyone who to see Morocco put on the list.
This is a natutal canyon in the lower Atlas Mountain. This mouatin got a lot of rock formations as if they were handmade . It is a very dry mountains due the lack of rain , because it is close to the desert. 
This is the high Atlas Mouantain in winter time. It snows like 3 times in winter and the snow stay like 5 months covered the pics of the mounatin .This one consist as well of deep valleys , almost bottomedless canyons, craggy peaks and mounatontops eroded by wind and rain unlike the lower atlas mounatin.
Also do not forget the desert to spend an over night in this golden sand dunes. As you can see in the picture there a camp and that one has everything !!!showers, toilets ...whatever you need. And the main transprtaion here is camel , a ride of one hour and a half to get the middel of the dunes where you will see a kind of lanscape that makes you think that the whole of the world around you is just sand.
