More about Chefchaouen

The city of Chefchaouen was founded in 1471 as a small kasbah by Ali ibn Rashid al-Alami, a descendant of Abd al-Salam ibn Mashish al-Alami and Idris I. Al-Alami The name "Chefchaouen"  originates from Berber.  The Berber word isakon or echaouen which means 'the horns', The word chef which means 'look at'.  Therefore, Chefchaouen thus means 'look at the horns' referring to the two mountain peaks overlooking the area. Nowadays, "the Blue Pearl" of Morocco, is known for its traditional houses painted in blue and white.  Beautifully perched beneath the two peaks of the Rif mountains, Chefchaouen is one of the prettiest towns in Morocco, an artsy, blue-washed mountain village that feels like its own world.  While tourism has taken hold, the balance between ease and authenticity is just right. The old medina is a delight of Moroccan and Andalusian influence with red-tiled roofs, bright-blue buildings and narrow lanes converging on the busy Plaza Uta El Hammam and its restored kasbah.  Chefchaouen is an amazing town that you should not miss. Come on a tour with Morocco Meta Adventures to see the best of the country.

More about Fez (Fes)

Fez (Fes) is the spiritual and cultural capital of Morocco.  It is known for its famous medina of which there are two parts.  One is Fes el-Bali, the site of the famous Qarawiyyin University and the Zawiya of Moulay Idris II, important religious and cultural sites.  The other is Fez el-Jdid, the site of the 195-acre Royal Palace.  Both sites are linked together and referred to as the Medina of Fes.  In 1981, UNESCO designated the Medina of Fes, a World Heritage site, and described it as "one of the most extensive and best conserved historic towns of the Arab-Muslim world".  Fes is the first site in Morocco to be granted this status. This enchanting labyrinth of alleyways remain much as they did centuries ago.  During its heyday, Fes attracted scholars and philosophers, mathematicians and lawyers, astronomers and theologians.   As a result, craftsmen built them houses and palaces.  Then kings endowed mosques and medrasas (religious schools).  And finally, merchants offered exotic wares from the silk roads and sub-Saharan trade routes. The Medina of Fes is maybe the world’s largest car-free urban area.  Here you will see only carts pulled along cobbled lanes by donkeys, horses or people.   This medina is a feast for all the senses.  The vibrant souks with their handcrafted works of art, the vendors hawking their wares and the incredible architectural details in the many buildings offer a never-ending display to the visitor.  As well, there is the Chouara Tannery, one of the most popular attractions in Fes. Although Fes lost its influence at the beginning of the 19th century, it remains a supremely self-confident city whose cultural and spiritual lineage enchants visitors.  Soak in the old-world atmosphere of this living museum on your visit.   Contact us and let Morocco Meta Adventures be your guide in Fes.

More about Volubilis

Volubilis is a North African archaeological site, located near Fès in the Zerhoun mountain Plain of Morocco.  Volubilis developed under several civilizations and grew rapidly under Roman rule from the 1st century A.D. onwards until being taken by local tribes about 285.  Sitting in the middle of a fertile plain, this ruined Roman city is the best-preserved archaeological site in Morocco.  The many beautiful mosaics preserved in situ are a highlight of the visit.  In 1997 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Volubilis is about 33km north of Meknes and can easily be combined with nearby Moulay Idriss Zerhoun to make a fantastic day trip from Meknes or Fez.   A visit to Volubilis will allow visitors, especially those with an interest in history and adventure, to experience the remnants of Morocco’s ancient past.   Ask Morocco Meta Adventures to arrange your tour.
