Morocco is a mountainous country located in North-East
Africa. Its coast stretches from the Mediterranean to the
Atlantic, morocco borders Algeria and Mauritania. The
strait of Gibraltar separates Morocco and Spain and is only
7.9 nautical miles long. The atlas mountain range is
Morocco's biggest and it stretches from the central coast
to the south east. In the far south of morocco there is the
Sahara desert, and Morocco's main cities and attractions
are located in the north such as the largest city,
Casablanca, the capital, Rabat and the best for tourism,
marrakech.
La Géographie
Much of Morocco's landscape is mountainous with slopes that
gradually transition into plateaus and valleys.

Jebel Toubkal is the highest point in Morocco at 13,664 ft (4,165


m) and is also the highest peak of the Atlas mountains.

The southeastern region of the country is blanketed by the


Sahara Desert, the world's third largest desert at over 3,600,000
square miles (9,400,000 sq. km).

Land degradation is a large issue for Morocco, and many other


countries located within the Sahara, as overgrazing of livestock
and destruction of vegetation has eroded the soil.
La Géographie
The lowest point of the country is Sebkha Tah at -180 ft (-55 m).

located in Northern Africa along the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean
Sea.

It also still shares borders with two enclaves that are considered a part of Spain
— Ceuta and Melilla.

The climate of Morocco, like its topography, also varies with location. Along
the coast, it is Mediterranean with warm, dry summers and mild winters.
Farther inland, the climate is more extreme and the closer one gets to the
Sahara Desert, the hotter and more extreme it gets.
Tourist attractions
Morocco has many interesting tourist attractions that
draw tourists in, it's a very picturesque and historical
country, and it not only draws in tourists but historians
and hikers also. The Marrakesh medina is the most well-
known attraction, a night time market that is steeped in
Moroccan culture, you will find traditional music and even
snake charmers here. Many tourists also take camel rides
through various cities, explore the high Atlas Mountains
and visit the various historical religious buildings
throughout morocco. It is a great destination for a tourist
to explore and see.

Pourquoi Nous Avons Choisi le Maroc
J'ai choisi de faire le Maroc parce que j'avais vu un documentaire sur la façon dont ils
ont boycotté les Jeux olympiques de 1980 et je l'ai trouvé très intéressant. Je l'ai
suggéré à mon groupe et ils étaient heureux de le faire. Paddy de mon groupe avait
également fait son affiche sur le Maroc, ce qui facilitait le projet.
Merci!
