Jamaa El Fna Square
Morocco is in many ways a country apart. It nestles on the northwestern tip of Africa, separated from the rest of the continent by the towering Atlas Mountains and the vast Sahara. Its Mediterranean and Atlantic coastline offers beautiful beaches and old coastal cities. Marrakesh is an exotic city and a throwback to the Morocco that once was. In much of the Medina (walled Old Town), the ochre and rose hued streets are too narrow for cars, allowing the medieval structures and character to remain intact.
