A Moroccan cultural circuit in the imperial cities
The culture of Morocco leaves its historical traces in the cities. Go to meet the great dynasties of the kingdom and their capitals. The Imperial cities of Marrakech, Rabat, Fez, and Meknes, respectively, represent the Almoravids, Almohades, Idrissides and Alawi dynasties. These cities have been able to keep their buildings intact and contain invaluable cultural treasures that leave an impression of astonishment. As Tahar Ben Jelloun recommends, take the time to read the walls and faces and listen to the words of the men who exchange around a tea. At the heart of these cities with exceptional architecture are the souks. They are home to all the ancestral know-how of Morocco. Artisanal methods are exposed, the most beautiful products are put on sale.
