Morocco has a rich history. Over the years Morocco has been conquered by many different peoples – from the Phoenicians to the Romans, the Arabs to the Ottomans - each leaving their mark and playing their role in its rich history. Morocco only finally became independent from France in 1956, and French is still widely spoken. Exploring the narrow streets of the medina of any of Morocco’s cities is sure to be a highlight, as is bargaining for souvenirs in the souk. Carpets, leather-ware, woven textiles, ceramics and jewellery are all excellent buys. Our tailor made holidays to Morocco will ensure you see all the historic sites you want.
Cuisine in Morocco
The Moroccan cuisine is sure to be a highlight of your holiday – delicate spices flavour even the simplest of dishes, rice or cous-cous elevated to exotic status with the addition of plump sultanas or juicy apricots. The delicious meat stew, tagine – usually made with succulent lamb or chicken - is world-famous and certainly will not disappoint.
Morocco grows plentiful fruit and vegetables and its long coastline secures a good supply of freshly caught fish and seafood. It is the world’s largest producer of sardines, and the Oualidia oysters are internationally renowned. The merguez sausages are deliciously spicy, and the sticky sweet pastries are not to be missed. Don’t forget to try the pastilla, an elaborate confection of delicate filo-like pastry with shredded meat – traditionally pigeon, but these days more commonly chicken or lamb – combining sweet and savoury flavours.
