Get lost in Morocco’s medinas


You can’t stay in Morocco without exploring its old districts. Losing yourself in its streets’ maze of houses and shops is considered an art form here. We recommend visiting the largest medinas in the country, in Fez or Marrakesh, to experience these bustling districts. Chefchaouen and Tetouan’s more intimate medinas are where you can take in Morocco’s thousand and one shades.

Chefchaouen’s intense blue hues that adorn its walls are a sight to see as this azure wave is a spectacle in its own right. Then, Tetouan's luminous white facades promise enchanting views. Discover the rich local craftsmanship and interweaving of Andalusian and Arabic influences in each of these medinas. For a varied mix, Asilah’s medina is sure to impress. This 15th-century city is where historic buildings and street art frescoes stand side by side, just like the country, which blends tradition and modernity.
