Culture and tourism

Culture:

Morocco has always been a land of cultural exchanges and encounters given its strategically-located position between the Mediterranean and Atlantic, Europe and Africa. The country's long-standing history has undoubtedly contributed to the emergence of a rich, authentic and diversified culture that takes several forms and manifestations, such as architecture, clothing, handicrafts, traditional music and folklore and gastronomy.

To celebrate its cultural diversity, Morocco lives annually at the pace of its festivals, moussems and other cultural events and it becomes the theatre dedicated to the various local and universal modes of cultural expression. Visit the website of the Ministry of Culture for more details.
