Morocco Holidays Allow You to Visit Some Fascinating Placesby Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides
Located in North Africa's Maghreb region, Morocco is considered as a gateway to the African continent. It is home to some fascinating ancient cities, mountain ranges, desert areas, and rich cultural heritage. You'll have a wonderful time visiting the old markets while exploring the country, as those are the places where you can get some attractive souvenirs, delicious street food, and local entertainment. During your time spent in this part of the world, you'll also come across some charming neighbourhoods and the heart-warming hospitality of the locals.
During your Morocco holidays, you'll get the chance to visit prominent cities of the country and their popular attractions. One of these cities is Marrakech, which is the fourth largest city in Morocco. It has been nicknamed as the 'Red City' as most of its buildings have been constructed using the red sandstone. This Moroccan city is famous for its large square called Jemaa el-Fnaa. It is visited by almost half of the population residing in the city every day to buy their desired items from the stalls and witness some thrilling acts of the local entertainers, such as traditional musicians, acrobats, and snake charmers.
When you are in Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco, don't forget to explore the Hassan II Mosque. It is the largest of all mosques in Africa and the third-largest in the world. The minaret of this mosque is the second tallest in the world and is 60 storeys high. Nearly 25,000 individuals can gather for prayer inside the hall of this mosque and another 80,000 can pray on the ground outside it. About 10,000 artisans were involved in the construction of this mosque. Casablanca is the business and economic centre of the country and is one of the most important cities in the African continent.
The Moroccan capital is Rabat and the city is home to some unique attractions that would allow you to learn more about the local culture and traditions. One of these places is the Oudaias Kasbah, which is among the most picturesque neighbourhoods in the country. While exploring this peaceful neighbourhood, you'll feel as if you've moved far away from the city even though it is located right in the centre of Rabat. As you move through the lanes of houses painted in the shades of white and blue, you'll hardly find any tourist in this part of the city. Oudaias Kasbah also gives you the chance to witness some excellent views of the city of Sale, the Bou Regreg River, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Chefchaouen is yet another fabulous place worth visiting during your Morocco holidays. It is located in the mountainous region of Rif and is a majestic labyrinth of blue buildings, which create an amazing glow. Your visit to this neighbourhood would be all about wandering the narrow alleys and savouring the views of the vibrant architecture and a peaceful atmosphere that prevails all around. During your visit to this neighbourhood, you can also embark on a trekking expedition to the Rif Mountains.
