A colorful blend of cultures, Morocco is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination. Only a little more than seven miles away from the Spanish coast, Morocco is a bridge between North Africa and Europe that features impressive architecture, beautiful desert vistas and exciting markets. Morocco is incredibly picturesque, with endless alleys decorated in colorful tiles. Moroccan food is famous for its use of spices that culminate in an interesting mix of Arabic, Berber and Mediterranean influences. Morocco also has some great options for visitors looking to shop, with street markets in Marrakech recognized as some of the best in the world. Marrakech is also famous for its street theatre, prominently played out in Djemaa el-Fna, Marrakech’s main square, named a ‘Masterpiece of World Heritage’ by UNESCO.
