Morocco: the Crossroads of Civilization
Welcome to Morcco, a land rich in culture, shaped by the vagaries of history. At any time in the year, you'll be as much as the sound of the wide range of experiences Morocco has to offer, from sumptuous places and vast gardens to the spice-scented bustle of the souks. In just a few hours, you can travel from the snow-capped peaks of the atlas to the sands of the desert. You will watch in fascination as the dexterous fingers of master craftsmen fashion masterpieces of embroidery, tapestry and jewelery, each one in its own way and, of course, do not forget the fabled of the realms!
