For most westerners,Morocco holds an immediate and enduring fascination.
Just 1/2 hours ferry ride from the Tarifa port of Spain,it seems at once very far from Europe.With a deeply traditional Islamic culture - that is almost wholly unfamiliar.Throughout the country,despite the years of French and Spanish colonial rule and the presence of modern and cosmopolitan cities like Rabat or Casablanca,a more distant past constantly makes its presence felt.
Fes, perhaps the most beautiful of all Arab cities, maintains a life still rooted in medieval times,when the Moroccan empire stretched from the Senegal to northern Spain,while in the mountains of the Atlas and the Rif, it's still possible to draw up tribal maps of the Berber population.As a backdrop of all this ,the country's physical make-up is also extraordinary.From the Mediterranean coast to the empty sand and scrub of the Sahara.
All of which makes Morocco an intense and rewarding experience.
