The royal cities of Morocco

The royal cities of Morocco with their ancient medinas are a true cultural voyage of discovery. In Rabat , the political capital, you will find the mausoleum of King Mohammed V, the father of independence, and the Hassan Mosque, which dates back to the 12th century. This unfinished mosque, with its three hundred columns, should have become the largest mosque in the Arab world after that of Mecca.

Fes, Meknes and Marrakech

In Fès , the oldest royal city in Morocco, you can dream away in a beautiful and luxurious riad. In Fès, which is not only the religious center of Morocco but also the artisan 'capital', is the royal palace: the Dar-al-Makzin. This palace can only be viewed from the outside.
Meknès , is beautifully situated on a hill on the wadi Bou Fekrane in the fertile Saïs plain. In the seventeenth century, Meknès was the capital of the mighty empire of the Alaouites. Sultan Moulay Ismael had the old Kasbah of the Marinids demolished and replaced by a city wall with beautiful gates. The Bab al Mansour is considered the most beautiful. In the kasbah is the mausoleum of this sultan.  In Volubilis, the holiest site in the country, you can admire the remains of this historic city, largely destroyed by an earthquake, from around the beginning of our era. Remains of a basilica, forum, triumphal arch and the many mosaic floors recall this time.

Marrakech is a wonderful destination for a city trip. This colorful city is described separately.
