DSC8009

Asilah is a fortified town on the northwest tip of the Atlantic coast of Morocco, about 31 km south of Tangier. Most of the year it is a quiet place, but in the summer its population triples as tourist come in search of a perfect holiday. Casablanca, located in the central-western part of Morocco and bordering the Atlantic Ocean, is the largest city in Morocco. Today Casablanca is a large, modern city, but the former French colonial charm still draws tourist to the medina and Old City. Ceuta is an 18.5 square kilometres Spanish autonomous city on the north coast of Africa, separated by 14 km from Cadiz province on the Spanish mainland by the Strait of Gibraltar and sharing a 6.4 km land border with M’diq-Fnideq.
