Morocco is a huge country. Its just a little over the size of California in land area at 446,550 sq km and is home to around 36 million people. Which is the same population as Canada. Morocco is home to several cities that are all completely different from one another which adds to the fun and adventure of discovering this great country.
Its inhabitants, the Amazigh (or Berber) people date back to the dawn of man. In the 7th century, the Muslim Conquests brought Islam to the people, and in 1912 the First World War, saw the annexation of Morocco to France. This occupation, designed to keep the Russians at bay, lasted until 1956. You will find the French influence to be everywhere still.
A marvelous melting pot of culture, religion, history and centuries old tradition that is only just now beginning to modernize, in some areas, Morocco is a unique and amazing place.
