Moulay-Idriss-Zerhoun is Moroccan me happy


Morocco has no shortage of places to visit and things to do. We’ve written several posts over the years about this complex and fascinating country, and have visited there, ourselves; rode the camels, worn the fez, eaten the couscous, etc. It’s a real eye opener, in the best ways.

One place we have yet to see is Moulay-Idriss-Zerhoun. “Spread over two hills near Mount Zerhoun, the whitewashed village of Moulay Idriss Zerhoun was the first Muslim city in North Africa and is now an important pilgrimage site. The mausoleum of the town’s founder, Moulay Idris I, is located in the beautifully decorated Zawiya Moulay Idris I in the center of the village. Moulay Idriss Zerhoun is filled with stunning examples of Islamic architecture, including the Sentissi Mosque, which features a cylindrical minaret—the only one in Morrocco—covered in a green and white zellige tile mosaic that spells out a surah from the Koran.” Read more here courtesy of Architectural Digest.
