Things to see in Morocco

Tips from real travelers about attractions and what to see in Morocco.
  • Jamaa el-Fnaa
    Jamaa el-Fnaa in Marrakech
    In your visit to Marrakech, you simply can't miss a nighttime visit to Jamaa el-Fnaa. I'd suggest heading around 11pm, more or less, and having a tea in one of the terraces (rooftop, preferably) of the bars that circle the square an...
  • Essaouira
    Essaouira in Essaouira
    After a few days in Marrakech, noisy and chaotic, and after nearly three hours across desert and farmland in an old bus with no air conditioning and surrounded by local people, we got to Essaouira and breathed peace and tranquility....
  • Merzouga Desert
    Merzouga Desert in Merzouga
    One of the most fascinating experiences I've ever had was spending the night in the desert and, above all, seeing the amazing sunrise above the dunes and how the sun warmed the sand and its shapes and colors shifted every second. It...
  • The Koutoubia
    The Koutoubia in Marrakech
    It was the minaret of this mosque which we used to guide us through Marrakesh, at least when we were in the Medina. It is the most important mosque, the inspiration to build the Giralda, and non-Muslims can not enter. However, they ...
  • Majorelle Gardens
    Majorelle Gardens in Marrakech
    Outside the walls of the city, we found the Majorelle Garden, a botanical garden in the heart of downtown Marrakech. This garden was built by the painter Jacques Majorrelle and therefore, he created it as he would a work of art. The...
  • Erg Chebbi
    Erg Chebbi in Merzouga
    This is a majestic and imposing landmark destination in Morocco that adds value to any outdoor activity. There are trekking routes, and camel and Quad tours. They offer the ability to live like nomads and soak up the remaining ancie...
  • The Ben-Youssef Madrasa, located in the northern half of the Medina, about a 20min. walk from the Djemaa El Fnaa (excluding the time you'll spend inevitable getting lost), is one of the most incredible and popular sights in the city...
  • Kasbah Aït Benhaddou
    Aït Benhaddou
    Kasbah Aït Benhaddou in Aït Benhaddou
    Imagine this. You're cruising along through the barren, rocky desert in the back of a dusty Mercedes building, no trees, just nothing. After about 10 minutes, you follow the curve around a barren hillside and come across a...
  • This is one of the largest in Morocco. It is amazing to walk aimlessly around its narrow streets and you need a detailed map for them so you don´t get lost. Inside you can experience all of its historical culture. You need at least...
  • Port of Essaouira
    Port of Essaouira in Essaouira
    A walk through the port of Essaouira is an important experience. A large boat parking area all painted blue because, apparently, sardines are particularly attracted to this color and so help fishermen in their work. In the pier ther...
  • Chefchaouen Old City
    Chefchaouen Old City in Chefchaouen
    My fellow photography fanatic, Diego, decided to cross not only a geographical border, but also a cultural, and religious one as well. We went in search of one of the most stunning and beautiful places we've ever heard of of. Chefch...
  • Souks of Marrakech
    Souks of Marrakech in Marrakech
    There is nowhere on Earth like the souks of Marrakech. I'd been to the souks of Egypt and Turkey before, but those of Marrakech took it to a whole other level. They're basically a small city in their own right! The souks are actuall...
  • Marrakech Medina
    Marrakech Medina in Marrakech
    Walking through the medina in Marrakech is like travelling back in time, back to another era that you could not imagine existed so close to home. The first few hours or the first few days you can not help but have your mouth hanging...
  • Medina of Chefchaouen
    Medina of Chefchaouen in Chefchaouen
    Our walk through Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains of Morocco, was an unforgettable and magical experience. The white houses with blue trim, the windows and turquoise railings are almost impossible to imagine. Visiting Chefchaouen wa...
  • Ouzoud Falls
    Ouzoud Falls in Azilal
    It's an hour and a half from Marrakesh and the journey is pretty rough. But it's worth it! When you arrive you feel like you're smack dab in the middle of some exotic country. Aside from the spectacular views, you can walk along the...
  • Hassan II Mosque
    Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca
    This is the second largest mosque in the world, after Mecca. This mosque is about 30.000 square kilometers. Its construction, without any interruptions, lasted 8 years and 2500 people worked on it in 24 hour shifts. It's a magni...
  • Menara Gardens
    Menara Gardens in Marrakech
    The Menara gardens mirror the Muslim Paradise on earth. It´s not difficult to imagine how they used to be in their moments of glory and splendor, when the rulers of Marrakech endowed them with all the luxuries and technological adva...
  • Bahia Palace
    Bahia Palace in Marrakech
    The Bahia Palace, in my opinion, is the most spectacular official monument to see in Marrakesh, even ahead of the Ben Youssef Madrasa. I'm not much of a history buff to be honest, so I can't tell you much on that end, but I can tell...
  • Marrakech Museum
    Marrakech Museum in Marrakech
    It is the headquarters of the Omar Benjelloum Foundation. The exterior of this building does not compare with the beauty of its interior. This is a feature of the most sumptuous buildings in Marrakesh. Perhaps this is to avoid the e...
  • The medina of Essaouira is a magical place. It combines the best of Moroccan Medinas and of Mediterranean coastal villages. The white-washed Medina is decorated with bright blue doorways and windows and many of the streets are paint...

  • Erg Chigaga
    Erg Chigaga in M'Hamid
    The majority of travelers visiting Morocco decide to experience the desert, usually that in Erfoud where the major tour operators are. The result is that the desert has lost some of its authenticity and has become an actual tourist ...
  • El Badi Palace
    El Badi Palace in Marrakech
    El Badi Palace is a wonder that once was. Apparently, it was once covered in gold, inlays of ruby and turquoise, and intricate tile-work and sculptures. During a sacking of the city centuries ago, all of that was stripped and the pa...
  • If in case you would rather find something else than a Moroccan souk, you can go to this place where Moroccans colour their skins. Accompanied by two local boys, I managed to get to the pools themselves, where they no foreigners go ...
  • Ourika Valley
    Ourika Valley in Tahnaout
    This valley south of Marrakech is the best option you have if you want to rent a car and have a quick tour around ... I rented a car and went to Zagora and Merzouga, But instead of going from Marrakech to Ouarzazate I went down th...

  • Fez
    Fez in Fes
    This city is a real maze so I recommend that you see some kind of map so you don´t get lost and not hire a guide to show you everything. I would also suggest you eat at the food stalls because food in these stalls is delicious.
  • Todra Gorges
    Todra Gorges in Tinghir
    Following the narrow track running along the Todra river valley from TINEGHIR palm for about 15 km, you will reach the spectacular gorge that was carved by the river. It's only 10 meters wide, but 160 meters high. The place is rea...
