    Archaeological and historical sites

  • 2 Portuguese Cistern Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Rue Mohammed al Hachmi Bahbah

    This vast underground vaulted hall was part of the fortified castle built in 1514. It was probably a weapons room before being used as a water reservoir. Its square plan with 34m sides is composed of six naves with groined vaults resting on 25 column..

  • 4 Essaouira Harbour Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Fisherman are the leading men here. Just watch them rushing all over, loaded with crates of fish which they unload from the boats, take to the market to be sold or display in large stalls. Here you can sample freshly caught sardines grilled the minut..

  • 5 Skala Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    The city's Skala continues down a long fortified alleyway, explained by its original defensive vocation on the Atlantic coast. It still boasts bronze canons, which you can walk past to reach the north bastion overlooking the ocean.

  • 8 Fes Medina Medersas Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    Place Seffarine

    Medersas, places of worship and religious instruction, are so numerous - and remarkable - that they constitute a theme unto themselves for a tour of the medina. To the north are the Mesbahiya, Attarine, Seffarine and Cherratine Medersas. To the west ..

  • 9 Zaouia Moulay Idriss Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    A zaouia is a holy place - for teachings and also a sanctuary containing the mortal remains of a saint. At the back of the prayer room here lies the tomb of Moulay Idriss, the father of Fez. Pilgrims can leave an offering for the many beggars outside..

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Place El Hédime

  • 11 Jbel Tazzeka Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    After the village of Bab-Bou-Idir and Bab-Taka Pass, you can hike up a trail through a wooded landscape (be careful, certain places are hard to get through) to the summit of Tazzeka at 1 980m. The view of the Rif and Middle Atlas is magnificent from ..

  • 13 Cedar Forest Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    Atlas cedars are justifiably famous. The largest and most beautiful plantings are in the central Middle Atlas, from Ifrane to Zad Pass, covering about 75,000 ha. There were far more of them in the past, but exploitation, aggravated by overgrazing goa..

  • 14 Bahia Palace Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Angle de la Rue Riad ez-Zitounnel Jdid

    A room, a bedroom, a staircase, a courtyard, a patio, an antechamber followed by another patio... While the rooms are not organised according to any specific plan, they all share a common point: their superb decoration featuring zellige tiles, sculpt..

  • Dar Si Said was the brother of vizier Ba Ahmed and this was his (19C) residence. It contains many treasures including a white marble vat dating from 1002-1007, and the wooden doors visible in the corridor. The pieces that make up this display of Moro..

  • 18 Ouzoud Falls Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    Ouzoud Falls are extremely popular, so it's best to avoid going on a weekend. The site is indeed superb and one never tires of the sight of the Ouzoud River's waters thundering down from a height of over 100m. There are steps leading down to the bott..

  • 19 Jbel Toubkal Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    Jbel Toubkal (4,167m) is the highest summit in North Africa, and thus in the High Atlas where it lies. The bravest - and most experienced - can scale its dark and austere granite slopes starting from Imlil. The hike takes more than 15 hours in all. B..
