For westerners, Morocco holds an immediate and enduring fascination. It seems to be far from Europe but the flight takes only 3 hours from major European capitals : Madrid, Paris, Rome and Geneva…etc. An Islamic and deeply traditional kingdom located in North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean ocean in the north and the Atlantic ocean in the east. Despite the French and Spanish colonization at the 19 century and the existence of cosmopolite cities like Casablanca, Rabat and Agadir, a more distant past constantly makes its presence felt. Geographically, the country divides into four zones: The Mountains, Atlas with its three sections and Rif in the north, the coasts: Mediterraneanand the Atlantic, the cities of the plains and the oases of desert and pre Sahara. In Morocco, we have three Atlas sections, the middle Atlas, the High Atlas Mountains, around 800 km length and 72 in large, famous for its highest summit in North Africa of Toubkal mountain 4167m and around 30 summits for more than 3000m high excluding Mgoun mountain 4078m, an ideal region for trekking programs departing from the magic Marrakesh, and the Anti Atlas. It is actually the Berbers who make up most of the Moroccan population with around 80 percent.

Morocco’s colonial occupation was from 1912 until 1956 when it reasserted its independence. The colonized kingdom was divided into two zones, French one was the larger, it comprised the plains, the Atlas sections and the main cities (Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Ouarzazate and Fez). The French authorities ruled their protectorate more efficiently, imposing their existence by Europeanizing the cities and use of their language which is widely spoken in Morocco today, it is also used in all administrative services including files and all kind of papers, the tax system is almost the same, even the Moroccan constitution was inspired in the French one, those are advantages for French people living in Morocco and encourage them to make a huge investments  all around the kingdom including riads & guest houses owners in Marrakesh medina. All this had the most lasting effects on Moroccan culture. The Spanish zone includes the Rif mountains, the northern Atlantic coasts and the Mediterranean regions except Tangier which was an international zone, as well as parts of Western Sahara in the deep south of Morocco.
