Unlike other North African nations, Morocco has been largely occupied by one group of people for as long as recorded history can recall. The Berbers, or Imazighen (free men), settled in the area thousands of years ago and at one time controlled all of the land between Morocco and Egypt. Divided into clans and tribes, they have always jealously guarded their independence. It’s this fierce spirit that has helped preserve one of Africa’s most fascinating cultures. The early Berbers were unmoved by the colonising Phoenicians, and even the Romans did little to upset the Berber way of life after the sack of Carthage in 146 BC. All the same, the Romans ushered in a long period of peace during which many cities were founded, and the Berbers of the coastal plains became city dwellers. Christianity turned up in the 3rd century AD, and again the Berbers asserted their traditional dislike of centralised authority by following Donatus (a Christian sect leader who claimed that the Donatists alone constituted the true church). Islam burst onto the world stage in the 7th century when armies swept out of Arabia. Quickly conquering Egypt, the Arabs controlled all of North Africa by the start of the 8th century. By the next century much of North Africa had fragmented, with the move towards a united Morocco steadily growing. A fundamentalist Berber movement emerged from the chaos caused by the Arab invasion, overrunning Morocco and Muslim Andalucia. The Almoravids founded Marrakesh as their capital, but they were soon replaced by the Almohads. Under these new rulers, a professional civil service was set up and the cities of Fès, Marrakesh, Tlemcen and Rabat reached the peak of their cultural development. But eventually weakened by Christian defeats in Spain, and paying the price for heavily taxing tribes, the Almohad power began to wane. In their place came the Merenids, from the Moroccan hinterland, and the area again blossomed – until the fall of Spain to the Christians, in 1492, unleashed a revolt that dissolved the new dynasty within 100 years. After a number of short-lived dynasties rose and fell, the Alawite family secured a stranglehold in the 1630s that remains firm to this day. Although it was rarely a smooth ride, this pragmatic dynasty managed to keep Morocco independent for more than three centuries.

Morocco has a rich repertoire of artistic traditions – exquisite marquetry, impressive leatherware, attractive ceramics and ornate silver jewellery, as well as a multitude of carpet designs. The Moroccan music scene has evolved to include a vast range of genres from the haunting strains of Arab-Andalucian love songs to the syncopated rhythms of Berber and Gnawa music, with African overtures. Contemporary musicians employ a fusion of African, French, pop and rock sounds. Throw in a serve of couscous washed down with sweet mint tea and you’ll come somewhere close to the cultural flavour of Morocco.

Modern History:

Enter the European traders in the late 19th century, and a long era of colonial renovations. Suddenly France, Spain and Germany were all keen on hijacking the country for its strategic position and rich trade resources. France won out and occupied virtually the entire country by 1912. Spain clung to a small coastal protectorate and Tangier was declared an international zone. The first French resident-general, Marshal Lyautey, resisted the urge to destroy the existing Moroccan towns and instead built French villes nouvelles (new towns) alongside them. Whether this was out of respect for the Arab culture or because the French had no desire to live in rundown medinas with no modern services is a topic up for debate. Whatever his reasons, Lyautey made Rabat on the Atlantic coast the new capital and developed the port of Casablanca. The sultan remained, but as little more than a figurehead. Lyautey’s successors were not so sensitive. Their efforts to speed French settlement prompted the people of the Rif Mountains, led by the Berber scholar Abd el-Krim, to rise up against both colonial forces. It was only through the combined efforts of 25,000 Spanish-French troops that Abd el-Krim was eventually forced to surrender in 1926. By the 1930s, more than 200,000 French had made Morocco home. WWII saw Allied forces use Morocco as a base from which to drive the Germans out of North Africa. With the war over, Sultan Mohammed V inspired an independence party that finally secured Moroccan freedom in 1956. Tangier was reclaimed in the process, but Spain refused to hand over the northern settlements of Ceuta and Melilla (to this day they remain Spain’s last tenuous claim on Africa). Mohammed V promoted himself to king in 1957 and was succeeded four years later by his son, Hassan II. This popular leader cemented his place in Moroccan hearts and minds by staging the Green March into the Western Sahara, an area formerly held by Spain. With a force of 350,000 volunteers, Hassan’s followers overcame the indigenous Sahrawis to claim the mineral-rich region as their own. By the 1960s it had become clear that the 100,000 or so inhabitants of the ‘territory’ wanted independence. Western Sahara’s Popular Front for the Liberation of Saguia al-Hamra and Rio de Oro (Polisario) didn’t take kindly to the invasion and embarked on a protracted war of independence against Morocco. Despite attempts at international mediation the issue remains unresolved. While the Moroccan masses applauded the southern invasion, it left nearby Algeria about as happy as the Western Saharans themselves. Morocco’s relations with this particular war-torn neighbour have been poor ever since.

It is generally thought that Morocco is populated by Arabs and Berbers. It is true that these two groups are dominant, although they are not alone. Arabs make up about half of the population. Coming from conquering tribes, they are essentially city dwellers. The Berbers (first occupants of Morocco, their name comes from the Latin barbarus), on the other hand, form the bulk of the population of the mountains and the desert. There are generally four groups, speaking four variants of the Berber language: the Rifans, the Middle Atlas group, the Berbers of the High Atlas and the nomadic groups from the southern provinces (mainly Reguibat). Although speaking a language close to Tamachek, the Reguibat are not Tuaregs. For a Westerner, the most visible difference between them is the saddle; the reguibat saddle is shell-shaped and its ornamentation is more sober. An anecdote about the Berbers of the High Atlas, who are essentially Chleuhs. Their reputation as indomitable warriors is so proverbial that their name became, during World War I, the nickname given to German soldiers. The Jewish population is still large and enjoys a strong economic position. It is true that Morocco has always been very tolerant of the Jews, who have never suffered insults and are perfectly integrated. Finally, we should point out two minority populations: Westerners (more than 100,000 people) and, in the south, Haratines, descendants of the slaves of nomadic populations.

Morocco is one of those religious frontiers where orthodoxy and local custom have met and compromised. The veneration of saints is frowned upon by orthodox Sunni Muslims but, in Morocco, mainstream Islam blends with the mystical practises of Sufism, which involves devotional dancing, poetry and trance. Because of this, the Moroccan calendar retains many moussems (non-Islamic ‘holy’ days), honouring holy men like Moulay Idriss. It’s worth asking around for details of festival dates because they alter a little every year. The two largest moussems in the Moroccan calendar are Moussem of Ben Aïssa, held in Meknès in June, and Moussem of Moulay Idriss II, held in Fès at the end of September when thousands gather to watch the processions to the saint’s tomb. Other, non-religious events, that pull in impressive crowds are the world-famous Gnawa and World Music Festival, held in Essaouira, and the Festival of World Sacred Music held in Fès in June. The Marrakesh Film Festival, held between September and December, is also growing in popularity and showcases Arab and African cinema to an often star-studded audience. Independence Day, one of five national secular holidays, is celebrated on 18 November.

Visas Overview:

All visitors require a passport. Citizens of the UK, EU, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand do not need visas. Three-month visitor’s stamps can be extended by Immigration or Bureau des Etrangers in most large towns.

Weather:

On the Atlantic-Mediterranean coastline June to September are the most pleasant times to visit Morocco, offering mostly rain-free days and moderately humid and warm conditions, with the mercury lingering around the high 20°Cs (low 80°Fs) during the daytime. Further inland, rain is sparse the year round and it can get quite hot. More comfortable conditions on the central plateau will be found during March to June and September to December. Don’t underestimate the extremes of heat and cold in the higher mountains, where some peaks can remain snow-capped from November to June.

When To Go:

On the northern coast the weather is tourist-friendly pretty much all year round, although winter can bring cool and wet conditions. Beaches further south are prone to fog in the summer months, a phenomenon caused when the heat of the desert meets the chill Atlantic current. In the lowlands, the cooler months from October to April are popular among visitors. This time of year is pleasantly warm to hot (around 30°C) during the day and cool to cold (around 15°C) at night. Winter in the higher regions demands some serious insulation. If you’re heading into the hills, the ski season usually lasts from December to March. April to October is the main trekking season, when the mountain snows start to thaw. In high season (mid-June-mid-September) you’ll need to book or you may find areas full.

Fes World Sacred Music Festival

Fes World Sacred Music Festival
Fes World Sacred Music Festival

Moroccan people have an important cultural heritage, and they are always proud to show it to others. Also, they are always glad to receive other cultures in order to create a dialogue between all nations, cultures, religions, and civilizations, and the Fes World Sacred Music Festival is the best example of this desire.

Founded in the 9th century and home to the oldest university in the world, the Al-Qarawiyyin University, Fez reached its height in the 13th and 14th centuries under the rule of the Marinid dynasty, when it replaced Marrakesh as the capital of the kingdom.

The urban fabric and the most important monuments in the medina – madrasas, fondouks, palaces, residences, mosques and fountains – date from this period. Although the political capital of Morocco was transferred to Rabat in 1912, Fez has remained the intellectual and spiritual capital of the kingdom, and it has become a center for meetings and exchanges, and was chosen as the World Capital of Islamic Culture in 2007. It is reported that Sylvester II (Gerbert d’Aurillac), Pope from 999 to 1003, stayed during his youth in Fes in order to study. As a result, he introduced Arabic numerals into Europe.

Maimonides, Jewish physician and philosopher, taught at the Qarawiyyin University. The work of this philosopher is a wonderful illustration of the symbiosis of the Judeo-Islamic culture that prevailed in Andalusia and found a similar echo in Fez.

The Fes World Sacred Music Festival, created in 1994, falls under the scholarly tradition, as well as the artistic and spiritual life of the city. Since its creation, this event has been an absolute continental and international success. The Fez Festival of 2001 was designated o by the United Nations as one of the events that has contributed in a most remarkable fashion to the dialogue of civilizations.

Many other cities have been influenced by this important event and have organized many similar festivals, such as Milan, London and Madrid, in order to extend the message of the Festival of Fes: the dialogue of spirituality through music, creating a culture of peace promoted by a plural globalization, and respect of ethical and spiritual values.

Fes is a central space of cultural exchange par excellence, so you are invited to discover the spirituality of this city that welcomes all nations, regardless of their culture and religion, in order to have an image of the world as a place that can be full of peace and love.

It’s More Than Just a Hat – the Moroccan City of Fez

the Moroccan City of Fez
the Moroccan City of Fez

If the word ‘Fez’ brings to mind the little hats members of the Shriners wear, or the little hat on Abu, the monkey from Walt Disney’s ‘Aladdin’, then you’re not thinking of the right Fez. The city of Fes, located in Morocco, is actually the oldest and largest medieval city in the world and it has not stopped bustling since it was founded in 789 AD. It has changed little through the centuries and that is what makes the city so unique and enjoyable to explore.

Fez has its own culture, art, cuisine, and even pride amongst its residents. During World War I, the city’s oldest quarter, Bali, was saved by a French general, Lyautey, who took control and arranged to make sure the old historic buildings were preserved. The entire sector of Bali in Fez to this day is under the protection of the laws the general put into place and the medieval structures are still quite sound as the city moves around it. With narrow streets that only mules, donkeys, and pedestrians can pass, Fes is developed and alive.

Shopping in Morocco, Fez:

Fez is a city that has been stuck in time as many of the house walls that still stand attest to. They have been there since before the Crusades and the first European ever crossed the Mediterranean. The entire ecosystem and organic structure of the city – animals, humans, and flora – has been in place for over 1,000 years and the symbiosis of the city will probably be the same in 1,000 more. Modern visitors may not understand why the city works the way it does and may find it primitive, but Fez is anything but.

As you move through Fes you will find that the older streets have a few shops, namely groceries where the local citizens can buy the usual commodity items like sugar, tea, tin, Coca Cola, and anything else the owners may decide to offer. You will also find small shops and stands throughout the narrow streets of this medieval city selling handmade crafts, fruits, vegetables, and more. More touristy types of shops are found off the wider streets of Fez, but even then, handcrafted goods seem to be the norm.

Some of the more interesting shops in Fez are the clothes shops that dot the city. Even if you do not purchase anything – clothes from this part of the world tend to run on the small side so you may not find anything that fits – the clothes shops are a sight to see with all of the clothes in a myriad of colour, styles, and textures hanging from every free space available – ceiling, walls, everywhere. If there is something you want to see in the shop, the shop keep will retrieve it for you using a long stick that will reach close to 6 meters above your head.

You are also going to want to visit the rug factory where they are woven and maybe even bring one of these beauties home. There are hundreds of carpets to choose from and the family business has made them extremely popular all over the world. The tile shop is where all of the small tiles you see in Morocco in mosaics and other decorations are made. You can watch as the craftsman cut each tile by hand and you will be amazed as the addition of a little bit of water brings the colors to bear. You will even find shops that sell nothing but reels. If you are looking for a special something, you should easily find it here in Fez. The specialty item stores have exploded in this beautiful city.

Other Morocco Places:

If you are visiting a Muslim country you will invariably notice the many mosques that litter the cities throughout. Some of the mosques non-Muslims can visit. The Kairouine Mosque in Fez non-Muslims cannot enter although you can get a glimpse inside if the doors are open. The mosque is the centre of Islamic learning in Morocco and has been for more than 1,000 years. The mosque’s structure grew in the 10th and 12th centuries as it was added to and unless you are able to actually enter the mosque, you cannot get a grip of how large it really is. Make sure you try to peek in one of the many open gates and if you can get a picture, take one. Just make sure you respect the individuals going in and out and do not take their pictures.

The Merenid Tombs just north of the city is where the many Merenid rulers are buried. These are the men that made the city the cultural and religious centre of Morocco and the tombs are interesting to tour. The Royal Palace is another must see although you will only be able to see and enjoy the exterior of this magnificent building as it is closed to all visitors.

Fez is a city that is well worth taking your time to walk through and tour. From the tanner’s quarter to the Jewish quarter, you will find that it is a city made of different religions, traditions, and styles, a virtual Moroccan melting pot and unique on its own.

A Slice of Moroccan History in Fez

A Slice of Moroccan History in Fez
A Slice of Moroccan History in Fez

Fez in Morocco is famous for its medina (old city) known as Fes-al-Bali. It was founded in the ninth century and is a UNESCO World Heritage site encircled by an eight-kilometre wall. Visiting the medina is an unforgettable experience as it has changed little since mediaeval times. The streets are narrow and free of cars and there are many souks selling produce from all over Morocco.

The majority of the things to do in Fez are within its walls and joining a tour or hiring a guide is advisable, as visitors often get lost inside the medina.

Fun Activities in Fez

  • Shopping in Fez

Shopping is a fantastic experience inside the medina as there are many souks (markets) where visitors can purchase handicrafts, rugs, pottery, antiques, traditional Moroccan clothing, Jewellery, tea, spices and just about anything else. It is easy to spend a whole day wandering around the souks.

  • Festivals in Fez

In June each year Fez holds the Fez Sacred Music Festival, where musicians from all over the world play traditional music originating from their particular cultures. The festival has Sufi chants, Pakistani Qawwali music, Egyptian Madhi odes, flamenco music and much more. Furthermore, there are Whirling Dervishes from Turkey dancing at the festival and at the finale all the musicians perform a fusion of different styles of music together. Every year in April Fez the Fez Festival of Sufi Culture is held in the city. It has a program of Sufi music and chanting as well as dance performances and lectures about Sufism.

  • Cuisine in Fez

There is no shortage of places to eat traditional Moroccan cuisine in the city and the famous Tagine, and couscous dishes are very delicious. A Tajine is a type of traditional stew where food is cooked slowly in a clay tagine pot placed at low temperatures. This delicious dish is made from vegetables, fruits and meat. Spices in this dish include, Cinnamon, ginger, cumin and Saffron. Couscous is a staple in North Africa and made from semolina. The couscous is piled onto a plate and covered in a vegetable stew. It is usually served with either lamb or chicken.

What you should see in Fez

  • Karaouine Mosque

The Karaouine Mosque is the most important Islamic building in the medina. Non-Muslims are not allowed to enter but the many religious schools that are around the mosque can be visited by anyone. The 14th century Attarin Madrasa is the most famous school with its beautiful Islamic architecture.

  • Tanneries

Morocco is famous for its soft leather and visitors can watch the process of leather dying at the tanner’s quarter in the medina. A guide must accompany them in order to enter the tanneries, which can smell rather unpleasant due to pigeon droppings being used during the curing process.

  • The Merinid Tombs

On a hillside, north of the Medina, visitors will find the Merinid Tombs. These are the ruins of the graves of a Moroccan dynasty dating back to mediaeval times. The ruins of the palace and necropolis are close by and there are lovely views out over the city making for a fantastic place to spend a few hours.

  • Gates to the Old City

Fez has several beautiful gates leading into Fes-al-Bali, which are well worth visiting. The Bab Bou Jeloud in the west is beautifully decorated and a convenient area to stay in, as visitors are sure to find their choice of Fez hotel here, while there are also plenty of restaurants surrounding the gate. Bab Er Rsif is the central gate and opens out into a square with a mosque. In the southeast visitors will find the Bab el-Ftouhat, which opens out to the cemeteries and Bab Guissa is not far from the Merenid tombs in the north.

Morocco Bygone Days To Present Ways

Morocco - Bygone Days To Present Ways
Morocco – Bygone Days To Present Ways

Morocco – Bygone Days To Present Ways, Morocco has a history as important as any other in Africa, Eurasia or America. In some parts of the world, when humans first learned that stones make better tools than twigs, the Moroccan mountains and their interior were inhabited by Libyan and Ethiopian settlers named Barbaroy. Phoenician trading posts soon developed rapidly at the ports of Chela (Rabat) and Tingis (Tangier). Morocco has a long history that should not be ignored.

During the tiring days, the Sahara desert broke out with flora and fauna as well as hunters and gatherers. These first humans were among the earliest ancestors of Morocco. Archaeologists have also pointed out that Morocco blushed with humanity during the Stone Age before people reached Egypt, Algeria and Libya.

These earliest settlers – now Berbers – thwarted any attempt to invade the interior of Morocco. When the Romans arrived a few years later, the Moroccan Berbers surprisingly opposed this occupation. Although the Romans occupied most of Outer Morocco, the Reef Mountains and High Atlas Mountains were untouched for centuries. Later, when the Vandal and Byzantine armies invaded Morocco as their own, the interior – the Berbers of the High Atlas Mountains – remained united and invincible.

Morocco – Bygone Days To Present Ways, The Moroccan Berber is not Islamic, not even when Islam reached Tunisia around 650 AD, or when it reached the Moroccan plains from Musa Ibn Nasr. More Moroccans – former Christians and Jews – converted to Islam before unifying the state – and its Berbers – into the broad religion of Islam today. Under Moulay Idris II, Arab rule controlled most of Morocco. With the creation of Fez as an influential city along the trade route and the famous Kairawin University, Arab influence became unstoppable.

The dynasties that ruled Morocco came and went. From the Almoravids, Almohads, Merenids to the Wattasids, Saadians and Alaouites, Moroccan sovereignty sees countless hills and valleys. The state has gone from one power of government to the next. Even in the 20th century, power struggles seem to have become commonplace.

France colonized Morocco in the early 1900s. With a similar model used elsewhere – even in Tunisia and Algeria – French hegemony was flourishing, despite sharing parts of the country near the Atlantic and Mediterranean with Spain. The French cleverly gave (some) their mountain and tribal guides a certain degree of independence. Rabat and Casablanca are French-style administrative capitals. Over time, World War II and several national and international tensions, Sidi Mohammed became King of Morocco in 1956. Spain still controlled Sebta and Mellila on the Mediterranean coast.

Morocco – Bygone Days To Present Ways, Today Morocco has some extraordinary relationships with the rest of the world. The newest ruler, King Mohammed VI, maintains various friendships and alliances with Arab and Western circles. Although Western Sahara remains in doubt, the current king expressed concern that he would optimistically help Morocco enter the modern world as a competitor to the global economy and market.

Touring in Morocco and tourism in Morocco are growing rapidly. With the increase in the number of tourists, the country is about to change (perhaps more west). Morocco should be visited earlier rather than later to better understand old traditions mixed with new ways of thinking and acting.
