"This evening's sunset is something unique and unforgettable".
Moving to Casablanca, the economic capital of the country, several Moroccan friends advised us to dedicate two hours to visit the great Hassan II mosque. What to say? Formidable!
The structure is the perfect example of symbiosis between nature and human construction; overlooking 2/3 on the Atlantic Ocean, with a minaret of 210 meters (the highest in the world) and the ability to accommodate more than 25 thousand people inside is truly a must see.
Next to the Medina, you can visit the small fortified citadel facing the sea: the Kasba of Oudaïa. Once a military strategic point to face attacks of the Berbers, today an excellent vantage point from where to admire the Atlantic Ocean, supreme sunsets and the nearby city of Salé.
Then we pass to Rabat, where the first stop is the Tower of Hassan, a work entirely abandoned at the death of the caliph in 1199. It should have been the largest mosque in the world with its 200 columns but today we can admire the great minaret and columns of different height, taken by assault by tourists who climb them to take pictures.

Moving on to Fez, the city, along with Marrakech, which is preferred for its authenticity. A focal point of art and craftsmanship, where even the most astute traveler will be lost in the alleys of its medina. Fez is also very famous for its tanneries, there are almost 70, hidden between the houses and the streets; here the skins are treated, colored and dried in the sun before the working process. In addition to leather, Fez is also very famous for its fabrics and carpets entirely made with the frame. Let's not forget that the mastery of the artisans reaches its peak with the processing of clay for the composition of mosaics, vases and foodstuffs of the highest quality.
Here we are finally in Chefchaouen, the blue pearl of Morocco, made famous in recent years, by social and travel documentaries. Considered one of the new most visited destinations in 2017-18, it is really a must for evert travel on the road in Moroccan territory. The only advice is to get lost in the blue lanes of the medina!
