Historical sites in Morocco

Morocco has an abundance of historical sites. Marrakech has the lion’s share, with gems like the Koutoubia minaret and the Saadian tombs. But there are many other sites worth a visit: the 12th century Hassan tower in Rabat, the crumbling remains of the ‘Versailles of Morocco’ in Meknes, the grandiose Telouet Kasbah, on an old caravan route in the Atlas mountains, and the UNESCO-listed Roman ruins at Volubilis. We can organise sight-seeing trips to all these places.

Activities available for Historical sites

The Lawrence of Morocco map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
