Morocco’s geography is divided into two distinct chains: Toubkal is one of the tallest peaks in the Atlas Mountains, which are separated into three chains: the big Atlas, the middle Atlas, and the tiny Atlas. Watering spots and cities such as Ifran, Marrakech, Agadir, Fes, and Meknes are surrounded by mountains.

The seashore is hemmed in by peaks spanning from Tetuan to Nador in the north. The Rif Mountains are located in northern Morocco and are not part of the Atlas Mountains, but rather form part of an arch that extends up to Gibraltar’s rock and southern Spain.

The Rif Mountains rise to 2448 meters above sea level at their greatest point, close to the Algerian border, from the coast at Tangiers and follow the craggy Mediterranean coastline almost to the Algerian border.

This rocky region contains some lush valleys used for agriculture, which are likely to include illegally cultivated cannabis, for which it has become famous. White washed villages stained by blue in the Andalusia style can be found within these mountains.

When you think about Morocco, the first city that comes to mind is Marrakech, or “Amur -akush in the Amazigh language.” A visit to this city is a must on every trip to Morocco.

Marrakech, often known as the Red City, is Morocco’s second largest city. Marrakech Medina is a vibrant center of entertainment and is known as one of Morocco’s gems.

It is a key economic hub with a number of emerging sectors and marketplaces.

Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city, is situated on the Atlantic Ocean. It is the capital of the Greater Casablanca region, as well as the key commercial and naval base. Casablanca is Morocco’s cosmopolitan, industrial, and commercial hub (and its largest city).

The contemporary city of Casablanca was built by Berber fishermen in the 10th century and was later exploited as a key harbor by the Phoenicians, Romans, and Merenides. It was demolished by the Portuguese, who rebuilt it under the name White House and left it after the great earthquake of 1755.

The city was reconstructed by the Moroccan monarch as Daru l-Badya, and the Spanish merchants who established commercial bases there gave it the name Casablanca. The city was captured by the French in 1907, and the protectorate was founded in 1912 when the construction of Ville Nouvelle began.

The city obtained independence from the rest of the country in 1956.
