Morocco lies just under nine miles from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar. The only place where the Mediterranean Sea mixes with the Atlantic Ocean.
Morocco is a country filled with natural beauty, tradition, fascinating culture and exceptional historical places to explore. The landscape is astounding and varies from the Sahara desert, mountain ranges and seaside towns.
The first thought that comes to mind when thinking about Morocco, is that this is a country living in an age long forgotten, with absolutely no freedom, or rights to women. Sadly, being a majority of Islam means females have virtually no rights. If you can get past this prejudice, there is a country and culture filled with history, inspiration and contrasts waiting to be discovered. Consider Morocco Holidays.
