In the Palais de la Bahia in Marrakech it is confusing when you first notice the patterns as they seem more Spanish than Arabic the patterns of many different civilisations and cultures emerge because it has been ruled and conquered by so many different groups of people over the centuries, this is reflected in the countries art and architecture.
In the city Marrakech you can see where Moorish, Berber, Arabic and Andalusian cultures were all coexisting together. In Chefchaouen the 'Blue City' where once was colonised by Spain and where Spanish is still spoken by its residents you can see and feel the Mediterranean connection weaving its way through the city in colours, architecture and cuisine as the colours of the sky and ocean are intertwined into everything.
Fez reflects the true Morrocan style as it's a predominant Islamic city with Islamic decorations and building design, within the sand dunes of the Sahara, southern Morocco around and near Merzouga it feels tribal and definitely more African.
In the Atlas Mountains you will come across the Berber women weaving vibrant coloured rugs with intricate patterns which will tempt you to buy with the simplistic but stunning colours and styles.
