4. Meknes[SEE MAP]
Meknes is an old city with a rich history dating back to the 11th century. It was once the capital of imperial Morocco and was developed by the Sultan at the time, who built high walls and large doors to protect the city and create ornate Moorish-Spanish-style buildings.
The city’s blend of European and Islamic design can be seen in its many monuments, such as the mosaic tiled Bab Mansour Leleuj and the mausoleum of Sultan Moulay Ismaïl, which features fountains and decorative gardens. These sites, along with the Bab Mansour Leleuj, showcase the city’s stunning beauty.
