The Gate of Africa

The Kingdom of Morocco is the Gate of Africa. The country represents distinctive richness of landscapes, geographical forms, space, light, color and extraordinary hospitality and openness of Berbers - the indigenous people of this part of Africa. Mediterranean coast and the Atlantic, snow-capped peaks of the majestic Atlas Mountains, vertical canyons, open spaces of the Sahara, palm oases, clay molded Kasbah and villages, bustling bazaars, cosmopolitan city centers in contrast to the medieval maze of the medina alleyways are just some of the attractions that you can expect from a visit to Morocco.

It is a country of contrasts in climate, landscape and culture, in which modernity has not yet reached places where the inhabitants, who live as centuries ago by the seasons and hours of prayer say: "you have watches - but we have time." A country with a rich history (and prehistory), which, despite intensive development in recent years has kept the charm of the exotic land of 1001 Nights.
