The largest city in Morocco is the commercial centre of the country and its 'unofficial capital city'. The city is a blend of old and new, with a gorgeous Old Town Medina and Art Deco new town - once again built by the French at the start of the 20th century. The old, traditional walled 'medina' lies to the north of the city, where you'll inevitably find yourself immersed in the bustling markets - an experience which can seem quite overwhelming. However, it is a truly remarkable place to explore, with tiny labyrinthine streets and tall, dusty traditional and colonial-style buildings. If it all becomes a bit much, escape to the League of Arab States Park, a green oasis built in 1925 that makes a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
