Welcome to BM Universe. This video is about 14 Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Morocco.
Roman ruins and kasbahs made of orange mud bricks make Morocco one of the most fascinating historical destinations in all of north Africa.
Shopping in the souks of Marrakesh and Fes is like no other, as they are stocked with unique items made by local artisans. Getting out of the cities on a trip to Morocco opens the door to some of the most breathtaking landscapes in North Africa.
The Atlas Mountains traverses the heart of Morocco, making for excellent hiking and other outdoor recreation opportunities. Sleeping among the towering sand dunes of the Sahara is a popular activity for visitors willing to make the long journey to the country’s easternmost region.

Many visitors come to Marrakesh to experience the city’s famous medina. Djemma el-fna Square serves as the gateway to the old city and is a popular spot to watch street performers such as acrobats, snake charmers, and stall vendors. When you enter the medina, you’ll find a labyrinth of narrow streets lined with merchants.
Chefchaouen is a photogenic hill town nestled in the Rif Mountains with blue-on-blue buildings.
The town’s main attraction is that there’s not much to see. Medina alleys and colourful architecture are the main attractions. It’s a peaceful, easygoing town where you can recharge after visiting Fes and Marrakesh. It’s a starting point and organisation centre for Rif Mountains walks.
Erg Chebbi’s Dunes
East of the High Atlas spine, near Algeria, are Morocco’s Sahara dunes. Erg Chebbi’s dunes are popular. This is prime territory for dune-surfing, four-wheel-drive dune-bashing, and camel trekking, combined with a tented desert camp.
Fes el Bali
Fes is Morocco’s other major cultural hub. Compared to Imperial City, Fes is much less gentrified. Fes el Bali’s medina is a maze of narrow alleys where it’s easy to get lost. In the souqs area, you’ll find tanneries with huge vats of dyes.
Ait Ben Haddou
The golden-stoned adobe ksar is set in breathtaking scenery. It’s a fairy-tale place, and Hollywood loves its orange turrets and curvy lanes. If you want the full Ait Ben Haddou experience, you can sleep in the ksar. If you’re in Morocco’s High Atlas, go. Try going before 10am or after 2pm to avoid tour buses.
Essaouira, Morocco’s most charming seaside town, was a 1970s hippie hangout. Today, the town has a thriving art scene and a hint of its bohemian past. Essaouira’s fortified seafront medina is the main attraction. Its twisty lanes have art galleries, boutiques, a bustling café and restaurant scene, and traditional souq shopping. Active tourists can walk along the beach to nearby villages or go surfing.
Roman ruins are Morocco’s most famous historic site. This sprawling site’s tumbled columns and temple remnants show that even the greatest empires fall. The intricate mosaic floors left in the ruins are the main attraction. The ruins’ hilltop location gives them a romantic air of lost glory. Climb through the ruins to the Capitol and Forum for panoramic views.
Dades Valley is one of the High Atlas region’s most picturesque spots. The slow-paced rural life here is the perfect antidote to the souqs of Marrakesh and Fes. The valley’s tiny villages are surrounded by orchards and farming fields. Spring is photogenic when fruit trees bloom. There are many day-walking and bird-watching options.
Erg Chigiga is Morocco’s largest dune field at 40km. This vast sand sea of Saharan dunes is less crowded than Erg Chebbi because it’s further southeast and less accessible on a short Morocco trip. The oasis town of M’Hamid is the main base for Erg Chigiga excursions. From there, you can take 4WD tours and multi-day camel treks into the dunes. To reach Erg Chigiga in one day from M’Hamid, you’ll need a 4WD tour.
Bab al-Mansour in Meknes
The Imperial City of Meknes is separated from the medina by this mammoth gate. The magnificent Bab al-Mansour is a remnant of the time when Meknes served as the capital of Morocco. It is the most impressive and well-preserved of all of Morocco’s ancient gateways. Visit in the late afternoon to capture photos of the gate in flattering light, and then take your time exploring the smaller, less hectic medina in Meknes.
The Rif Mountains provide relief from Morocco’s craggy peaks and arid plains. Hikers, bikers, and day walkers will find plenty of trails for advanced trekkers and those wanting a short easy walk. Tetouan and Chefchaouen are the main Rif Mountains bases. Talassemtane National Park has cedar and fir forest-covered mountain slopes, gorges, and valleys for trekking.
This valley connects the southeastern end of the High Atlas to the desert beyond. The road to Zagora is lined with palm tree oases and preserved mudbrick kasbahs and ksours. It’s great for a road trip, stopping at villages to admire the view and explore the kasbahs. Kasbah des Caids in Tamnougalt has been used in many Hollywood films. Timidarte village’s ksar architecture has been restored.
Casablanca’s Hassan II Mosque
Casablanca’s Hassan II Mosque is a symbol of the city and of Morocco. The 1993-built mosque doesn’t do things halfway. Every centimetre of the two-hectare site required 10,000 artisans. Intricately carved marble pieces, vibrant mosaics, and zellige tile details pay tribute to traditional Islamic architecture ideals and Moroccan craftsmanship while remaining contemporary.
Rabat’s Oudaias Kasbah
Rabat’s Oudaias Kasbah is one of Morocco’s most beautiful old towns. This district feels miles away from the city despite being in its centre. Lanes of neat white-and-blue houses rimmed by colourful flowerpots and flapping washing have a lost-in-time atmosphere. Unlike the old town areas of Fes and Marrakesh, there are hardly any tourists here, so it feels like a well-kept secret.
