Islamic culture has dominated the architecture of Morocco for over a thousand years. Horseshoe shaped Islamic arches, courtyard gardens inside of houses and elaborate decoration on outside walls are common throughout Morocco. The sheer luxury, color and decoration, and the quality of life within far surpassed the most lavish comfort of Europe for many centuries. Moroccans are Festive by nature. They see Festivals as a perfect mix of dance, song, beautiful traditional costumes and wonderful food. As a visitor, you will be encouraged to participate, to become part of the processions and feasting.
