There is no other Moroccan city that boasts such a demographic diversity: Arabs, Europeans, and Berbers have always blended with the Touareg populations north of Sahara and the Black Africans whose ancestors worked at the court of the Sultan in a city always known for being a passage point for caravans, coming through its gates from the 4 corners of Africa.
Highlights include Bahia Palace, Koranic school Ben Yussef, Souks, Saadian Tombs, the legendary Hotel Mamounia, or the Majorelle Gardens (once the property of a certain Yves Saint Laurent).
