  1. It is a country of multi-ethnic groups with a rich culture, civilization, and etiquette. Through Moroccan history, Morocco hosted many people in addition to the indigenous Berbers, coming from both East (Phoenicians, Jews and Arabs), South (Sub-Saharan Africans) and North (Romans and Vandals). All of which have had an impact on the social structure of Morocco. It conceived many forms of beliefs, from paganism, Judaism, Christianity to Islam.

  2. Get ready to be inspired about travel in the Maghreb of North Africa. Let your senses linger over Sephardic music sung in Ladino and Spanish by Vanessa Paloma, a Fulbright scholar in Morocco, learn new tales of our Jewish roots and how our people followed in the footsteps.

  3. I love traveling and I can say that it's one of my passions. I always fee so fulfilled whenever I visit a place or country. Morocco will be next to my list.

  4. I've heard a lot of good things about Morocco. I'd love to visit this place and see what it can offer.
