Morocco’s capital and largest harbor. It is also the Maghreb’s most populous city. Development and modernity are represented by economic, industrial, and financial capital.
Casablanca is home to the Moroccan government and large industrial complexes. The city has a significant modern architectural heritage as a result of the architectural diversity it experienced during the twentieth century.

Along with Marrakech, Meknes, and Rabat, it is considered one of the four “imperial cities.” It is regarded as the country’s religious and cultural heart. The city is divided into three zones: Fez el-Bali, the old zone within the city walls, Fez el-Jdid, the new zone, which includes the Mellah, the Jewish district, and Ville Nouvelle (New Town), the French zone in the city’s northwest. The greatest of the city’s two medinas, Fès el-Bali, is the world’s largest pedestrian zone and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981.
The fourth Imperial city, located on Morocco’s Atlantic coast in the northwest, is the result of a synthesis of Arab-Muslim tradition and Western modernism. UNESCO designated the city’s historical center, which contains the main buildings and squares, as a World Heritage Site in 2012. The Hassan Tower, the Mausoleum of Mohamed V, the Kasbah, and the city’s medina are just a few of the attractions in Rabat.
It’s a city in northern Morocco that sits at the foot of the Middle Atlas Mountains, surrounded by a lush green valley. Meknes is the capital of the Fes-Meknes region, and one of the four imperial cities of Morocco designated as World Heritage by UNESCO for its representative character as an urban and architectural complex of a seventeenth-century Maghreb capital that harmoniously combines elements of Islamic and European design and planning.
It’s one of the four imperial Moroccan cities and the square Jamaa el Fan, has been declared Oral Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The city is an important cultural center where important festivals of cinema, music and crafts stand out. Likewise, there is an atmosphere of greater tolerance than in other parts of the country. Marrakech is a chaotic, picturesque, fun, beautiful and undoubtedly unique city.
It is a Moroccan port city on the western Atlantic coast that is also known by its previous name of Mogador.
Apart from being a walled coastal city with magnificent sandy beaches and naturalistic treasures aplenty, it is also a walled city with a rich history. Its distinct seafaring aroma, wealth of craftsmen and culture, as evidenced by the presence of woodworking workshops, painting studios, exhibitions, art galleries, and musicians, as well as the provincial character of a small city that, despite everything, does not cease to be one, all contribute to its unique appeal.

Its highest peak is the Toubkal, at 4165 m, southwest of Morocco and is divided into the Anti-Atlas, Middle Atlas and High Atlas.

The enormous gorges and their valleys full of streams and palms, landscapes of photographs, that open us to a circuit of Kasbahs, Berber villages, artisan cooperatives of oil of argan or waters of roses.The options are many and all punishable.
This city is considered a “Holy City”, its narrow cobbled streets full of small craft shops, its houses painted in blue and white, and its welcoming and friendly inhabitants with an eternal smile are worth visiting.
It has several places that we must not miss like the Medina, the Plaza Hamman, the Great Mosque, the Alcazaba or Casba, the washhouses or the old mosque, which we can reach after a pleasant 30 minute walk from the washhouses and the river that have been located at one of the gates of the medina.
