Featuring everything from sunny coasts and relaxed countrysides to awe-inspiring mountains, Morocco is a popular tourist destination. Below are just a few of the country’s top attractions:

Meknes: one of Morocco’s four imperial cities, Meknes was a former capital of the country and it houses several major attractions of historical interest, including the Dar Jamai Museum and Bab Mansour. The city consists of a 9th-century medina nestled inside a 21st-century city and features numerous examples of Spanish-Moorish-style architecture.

Todra Gorge: found on the east side of the High Atlas Mountains, Todra Gorge is a breathtaking sight for many visitors. It was carved out of the mountains with the help of the Dades River and is perhaps most spectacular along its final 650 yards. This stretch of the gorge features smooth rock walls reaching up to 525 feet high and a flat track that shrinks down to just 33 feet wide.

Ouarzazate: serving as the shooting site of numerous Hollywood classics, Ouarzazate has hosted film crews from Cleopatra, Sahara, and Kingdom of Heaven over the years. Directors have been using the city and its surrounding desert for movies since the 1960s, and visitors can tour the locales and still-surviving sets from some of their favorite blockbusters.
