Morocco is a fascinating travel destination. It's a popular tourist destination for people from all over the world. The country is famous for its long and varied history and its rich heritage of merchants and traders. The famous movie "Casablanca" takes place largely in Rick's Cafe, located in Casablanca, Morocco. It is, in fact, an actual cafe - still conducting business just outside Casablanca's "medina". Many of Morocco's cities are thousands of years old. These ancient cities were built with tall walls surrounding them for security. The modern portions of these cities exist outside and around the medinas, which still have their surrounding walls. Access to the medinas are limited to the "babs" or gates, which are often very ornamental in design and uniquely Moroccan in appearance. Indeed, Moroccan architecture in general is often unique in appearance. And many modern Moroccan buildings are built with that same unique look. Consequently, as one drives through the countryside, particulary in the southern portion of the country along the "route of a thousand kasbahs", one can see new buildings alongside ancient kasbahs, with both looking much the same.

Merchants selling goods of every kind can be found in the medinas of Morocco. Stands and stalls selling fruits, vegetables, goat's heads, cow hooves, and freshly caught fish are interspersed with stands selling shoes, lanterns, carpets, tajine pots, tea pots....on and on with items too varied to list entirely. And so much of it is so colorful, it is a treat for the eyes. The photos of Morocco on this page include pictures of the markets in the medinas as well as the residential portions of the medinas, madrasas and some of the inhabited kasbahs. These travel photos include photos of Casablanca, Marrakesh, Meknes, Rabat, Larache, Ouarzazate, and the Sahara desert.
