During our trip, we will pass through many such magical landscapes, and we can also take stunning photos of them. There is nothing more beautiful than the morning and evening lights!

Ouarzazate at sunrise

Ouarzazate is a city south of Morocco’s High Atlas mountains, known as a gateway to the Sahara Desert. Its huge Taourirt Kasbah, home to a 19th-century palace, has views over the rugged local landscape, which features in several movies. Northwest is the fortified red-earth city of Aït Ben Haddou. Northeast is the rocky Todra Gorge. A road winds southeast through the Draa Valley’s lush palm groves to the desert.

Arch of Legzira beach
Legzira Beach arch

Often cited as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Legzira is famous for sunsets punctuated by the rock structures jutting out from the cliffs. They were formed over thousands of years by erosion

One of the most unique and beautiful beaches you’ll find anywhere, Legzira Beach is famous for its huge rock arch. There were oririnally two arches, but one collapsed in late 2016. The second arch is at risk as the ocean continues to erode the red sandstone from which it is formed. The arch is accessible at low tide, and it is quite an amazing sight to see.

Zagora, South-Eastern Morocco

The Ksar is located near the city of Zagora (south-east of the city center) on the road to M’hamid. The ksar is built on a hill. Its ramparts are preserved, on the other hand the four bastions have practically disappeared. A stone base (from one and a half to three meters) is used all along the ramparts. The ksar has two main entrances: the first overlooks the palm grove, the other leads to the Amezrou. The main buildings that surround the public square are: a mosque with its minaret built entirely of adobe, two forges, shops and the big house of the sheikh. From the public square, a main street known as the “assarag” divides the building into two equal parts. Another street leads to the Jewish mellah (composed of 30 homes) and a synagogue (triangular in shape and in good condition).

 

The initial Jewish settlers arrived in Morocco alongside Phoenician merchants nearly 2,500 years ago, introducing the traditions of the Hebrew community following the destruction of the first Temple in Jerusalem.
