Map of Morocco

Much of the intrigueing culture of old Morocco can be seen in the cities. All cities (except Agadir which has been totally rebuilt) have a walled old arab area or medina where the history of morocco can be glimpsed.

These cities will also have a new town or ville nouvelle alongside, built during the time of the French-Spanish Protectorate in the 20th century and this is where the railway stations will be along with other modern services.

An important part of any Moroccan city is the souks or markets, often divided into seperate areas dealing with different comodities and crafts.

As a result of the French control during the 20th century, many people in the cities will speak French as a second language, after Arabic.
