Publisher Description

RECENTLY UPDATED FOR 2022! With more than 100 high-resolution images, a new video and detailed tour itinerary, this is the definitive guide to Morocco’s imperial cities.

Four imperial cities — Fez, Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat — hold a magnificent collection of Islamic art and architecture, the legacy of seven dynasties that have controlled Morocco for over 1,200 years. With towering minarets that call the faithful to prayer, multi-colored glazed ceramic tiles that recreate the flora of Quranic paradise and stucco decoration that affords the impression of infinity, Morocco offers visitors an experience like no other. It is yours to discover.
