    Morocco The Four Royal Cities - Travel Video.
    DVD. Cosmos Global Documentaries. 52 Minutes. In addition to Meknes, F?s and Marrakesh, Morocco's capital city of Rabat is one of the country's historic four royal cities. Despite their differences, these cities share a common bond as they each contain the cultural and architectural treasures of a fascinating epoch. Rabat has a rich and colourful history and was first settled in the 8th century B.C. nearly two thousand years before the Hassan Tower was built. With its beautiful minaret, the 18th century Mosqu?e Es- Sounna is the most outstanding religious building in the centre of the city. The most architecturally impressive of the four royal cities is Mekn?s. In the 17th century Moulay Isma?l made this city into his own and thus created several new buildings. In addition to the largest gate in the Maghreb, the Bab El-Mansour, the city's former twenty kilometre long wall symbolises a further important legacy and highlights the wealth and flamboyance of the Alaouit sovereign. Although Mekn?s is one of the younger Moroccan royal cities it contains more than a thousand years of history and its fertile land was even much prized by the Romans. F?s is the oldest and, at the same time, liveliest of all four royal cities. Beyond its historic walls lies the origin of the Moroccan monarchy as well as numerous outstanding treasuries of the Islamic Middle Ages. F?s El-Jdid, an earlier section of the old town centre, is dominated by an immense palace, the Palais Royal. Beyond its gilded bronze gates is a small, luxurious world. Numerous architectural gems highlight the former incredible wealth of F?s. Marrakesh's history began in the 11th century when the Berber tribe of the Almoravides first settled on the Haouz Plain. In the course of time the early caravan trade with Black Africa and Marrakesh's southerly location transformed the city into what was the most African of Morocco's four royal cities and although the legendary caravans have since been replaced by modern roads and motor vehicles both past and present continue to live side by side. Even today each of the Morocco's four royal cities displays the former enormity, power and beauty of Maghreb culture in Morocco thus their historical monuments still manage to reflect the splendour of the country's intriguing and glorious past.

    Meknes - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Meknes is the monumental city of the four kings? towns of Morocco whose impressive gates and powerful walls surround the old town of Medina. The 20 kilometre long town wall is one the oldest relicts of the former sovereign of the Alaouits, Sultan Moulay Isma?l, who was prone to larger-than-life ideals. Also, the great silo of the Heri and Dar El-Ma's building dates back to this time, the end of the 17th century. It was designed to guarantee an adequate supply of food for the 150,000 men of the sultan's army. In the midst of the historic commercial district is one of the city's oldest buildings, the Medersa Bou Inania. The beautiful decor of its inner courtyard and walls fascinates with its overwhelming number of unusual artistic Majolika designs. Not far away from the Medersa Bou Inania there is a further significant building, the Great Mosque. There is much activity in the main streets and on the squares of Meknes and the beautiful Bab El Mansour Gate particularly attracts droves of visitors each day. Even today, the monumental architecture of Meknes holds great importance for this royal city.

    Meknes - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Meknes is one of Morocco's four royal cities and became famous due to its megalomaniac monarch, Sultan Moulay Ismail who is also known as Morocco's Sun King. The cruel and despotic sultan made Meknes the mightiest fortified city in North Africa. Moulay Ismail had an army of a hundred and fifty thousand men who were stationed at each of the country's main strategic points. Included in his royal household was a harem of six hundred wives of various races as well as countless children and a large retinue of African slaves. His former residence, the Heri and Dar El-Ma Complex, contained fifty palaces that were divided by way of gardens, barracks and stables in which there were twelve thousand horses. The Medina of Meknes is a World Heritage Site and contains both medieval and modern architecture. The old town consists of the Ville Imperiale, the ruins of the palace complex and also the Medina with it residential and commercial districts. It also includes the former Jews Ancien district and the Nouveau Mellah that is now known as Riad. The Medersa Bou-Inania is one of the most important buildings in the Medina. Its courtyard contains a shell-shaped well that is used for ritual bathing. The ground marble and alabaster stuccowork is decorated with objects made with fine spatulas. The Great Mosque was founded by the Almohads but was altered during the time of the Meridis and provides a close insight into the world of Islam. The Berber tribe of Meknassa first gave this city its name but following thousands of years of dramatic history the former royal city of Meknes remains an enigma to the present day.

    Rabat - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Rabat was once the centre of power of the Almohades and today it is the capital of Morocco and the government headquarters of King Mohammed The Sixth. The majority of its buildings are linked to the country's historic past and its former sovereigns including the Mausoleum of Mohammed The Fifth. Opposite the Mausoleum is one of the city's best-known landmarks, the Tour Hassan that rises 44 metres into the sky. In the picturesque quarter of the Kasbah Des Oudaias with its whitewashed houses and sky-blue doors and window frames is the city's oldest mosque. When Marrakech became the country's capital city, Rabat gradually fell into decline until when, in 1609, Andalusian Muslims and Jews settled here. An increasing number of people inhabited the Kasbah. The administrative area and likewise named parade ground of M?chouar in the south west of the town is part of the Cit? Royale, a town within a town. Beyond the city's defensive walls, the ancient ruins of Chellah are a reminder of both Pre-Christian and Pre-Islamic times. During the 3rd century B.C. the Carthaginians built their first trading establishment here that was later extended and became the famous Roman harbour of Sala. Due to its rich history, architecture and unique ambience, each year this royal city at the mouth of the Bou Regreg enchants thousands of visitors from all over the world.

    Rabat - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Rabat is the capital of Morocco and also its royal seat of power. The main residence of King Mohammed the Sixth is a fascinating modern metropolis. Along with its monumental works of art the fourth oldest of the Makhzen cities is also one of Morocco's most important. Caf?s and workshops reflect daily life and most of the city's souks are divided into specialised areas with items such as leather goods, blankets and carpets for sale: and with a little haggling it's possible to purchase quality handicrafts at a very modest price! The Kasbah Des Oudaias was built by Yacoub El Mansour in the 12th century. It is located at Rabat's most elevated point and is like a village within the city. The eight metre high wall once protected the Kasbah and its inhabitants and the fortress is inhabited to the present day. Barred windows create an Andalusian ambience. The Kasbah is one of the most popular though most expensive addresses in Rabat. Throughout the centuries the Moroccan coast was dominated by pirates but the might of European colonialists put an end to their dubious activities. The mausoleum of Mohammed the 5th was built in 1967 and the tomb complex contains a mosque, a mausoleum and a small memorial that contains images of the king. At the end of the 12th century Yacoub El Mansour constructed the largest mosque in the Maghreb. At a height of sixty metres its minaret was taller than any other in North Africa. Four hundred columns support the prayer room and it has fourteen gates. Rabat is a fascinating capital city and royal residence. An exotic world that lies between both occident and orient.

    Volubilis - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. A fertile plain beneath the mountains of Djebel Zerhoun surrounds Volubilis, the most important ancient Roman excavation site in Morocco. The former administration seat of the Roman African province of Mauretania Tingitana contained all the necessary attributes of a highly developed city. The ruins date back to the first and third centuries A.D., a golden time in this region. The production of oil and grain made the city prosper and during its golden years the city covered an area of around 40 hectares. The Roman settlement remained free from invasion for many years and was therefore able to develop without interruption from hostile forces. as Volubilis became the most important Roman trading centre and governmental seat in Morocco, an area devoted entirely to villas was developed to the North East of the Decumanus Maximus Road. The high standard of living enjoyed in those times is demonstrated by the richly detailed architecture of this area. An allegorical picture of the four seasons is a frequently recurring motif in the floor mosaics of the splendid villas that are located along the Decumanus Maximus Road. Another fine residence, the House Of Hercules, depicts the legendary deeds of this hero of antiquity. Even today, almost seventeen hundred years after the first impressive mosaics were laid within the villas, their colours are amazingly fresh and vibrant.

    Marrakech - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. In 1062 A.D. the Almovarides Dynasty founded the city of Marrakesh, known as, "The Red Pearl". The colourful Spice Market is only one of several markets, otherwise known as `souks' where baskets brim over with ginger, saffron, caraway and coriander. The souks are divided into different areas and specialities including various craft workshops in which coppersmiths and potters offer their goods for sale. Even today the bazaars still display the age-old splendour of this important trading city and caravan destination. Snake charmers still captivate curious onlookers and the Jemaa-El-Fna Square with its tricksters, minstrels and other entertainers is one of the oldest open-air variety shows in Africa. Each magnificent sunset shows why Marrakesh was given its nickname of "The Red Pearl", and this city is indeed a fascinating living gem of a time gone by.

    Marrakech - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Marrakesh, the `red pearl' of Morocco was founded by Youssef Ben Tachfin in 1602. It is one of the country's four Royal Cities. Up to the beginning of the 20th century the city was a trading centre for both the north of Morocco and the Sahara and the monarchs of various dynasties made Marrakesh their capital city. The large souks of Marrakesh's Medina are divided into numerous sections and stock just about everything known to Man! In spite of the city's apparent calm there is much activity and the traffic is surprisingly well disciplined. Marrakesh has the largest souks in Morocco. As well as shoes and clothing they stock all the necessities of life and of course bargaining and haggling are the norm! Daily life in the souks is dominated by trade. They are a vital meeting place and trading centre for the farmers of the High Atlas. Those who wish to experience Moroccan daily life can do so here and a stroll through the narrow alleys taking in the city's sounds and aromas explains far more than any travel guide. Place Jemaa El-Fna is the `Square Of The Beheaded' and is Marrakesh's most famous attraction with snake charmers, musicians and storytellers. In 2001 the Square Of The Beheaded was designated by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Built in 1158, the minaret of the Koutoubia Mosquee is the symbol of the city. The seventy seven metre tall sandstone minaret served as the model for the Giralda in Seville and the Hassan Tower in Rabat and most of it was built by Spanish prisoners of war. Marrakesh is an historic bridge that unites both urban and nomadic cultures - an exotic gateway to Africa and a captivating window to Europe!
