    Ait Benhaddou - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Ait Benhaddou Along the southern border of the High Atlas in the heart of Morocco is the impressive village of Ait Benhaddou. The settlement was once situated along one of the country's most important caravan routes but the region's ancient trading routes are no longer used today. A walled village, the Ksar, was founded in the 12th century by the people of Ait Aissa and its narrow lanes lead up to several fortress-like citadels, the five main Kasbahs of Ait Benhaddou. For visitors the narrow, medieval lanes of the village are tantamount to a confusing maze however the plain but nevertheless expressive architecture of the houses has a unique and magical atmosphere. Fortunately, the cultural and historical value of this unique Moroccan clay village has now been fully recognized otherwise each of the houses, towers and kasbahs of Ait Benhaddou may have long since disappeared beneath the sands of time.

Jutting into the sea is the Hassan The Second Mosque. `It was He who created Heaven and Earth in six days!' This paragraph from the Koran inspired Hassan The Second to build his momentous mosque that extends for nine hectares, a superlative construction that could comfortably accommodate the entire Peters Dome in Rome. Casablanca is a large city surrounded by many ancient villages where life has changed little since ancient times. The Place Mohammed The Fifth is the centre of Casablanca and is located between the old Medina and the new town with its large residential districts. Several administrative buildings, mosques and Art Deco buildings are situated in the vicinity of the Place Mohammed and there's also a pedestrian-only shopping mall. The head offices of numerous banks, insurance and commercial companies are located within the modern and flamboyant city centre with its imposing skyscrapers. The souks contain a labyrinth of alleys and each usually has its own specialty. The souks are the perfect place for those who wish to experience typical Morocco as the aromas and sounds of their narrow alleys are far more descriptive than any travel guide. Casablanca captivates all those who experience it. This former coastal city of seafarers and pirates is today both lively and contemporary with all the atmosphere and flair of a bygone time.

    Grande Mosquee Hassan II Casablanca, Morocco - Travel Video.
    DVD. Modern Times Wonders The Grande Mosqu?e Hassan II dominates the skyline of the Moroccan city of Casablanca.

Built between 1987 and 1993, this massive sacred building complex is Morocco's most visited and admired religious attraction. For the mosque's inauguration ceremony in August 1993, the guest list not only included Muslims but also Jewish and Christian dignitaries, thus making a statement to the world that this spectacular monument symbolized a tolerant Islam. The mosque's white-green minaret extends 200 metres into the sky and proudly sets off the city's skyline with a unique landmark and during the night, a 30-kilometre laser beam points in the direction of Mecca. It is little wonder that the Grande Mosque is a revered holy place and the new spiritual centre of the Moroccan Kingdom.

    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!

    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.
