Morocco Cultural Trips: The imperial cities or the royal cities in Morocco are four cities, Fez, Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat. In the period of Moroccan history, they were the capitals of countries that successively governed Morocco (Adarsi, Almoravids, Almohads, Watson’s, Marinids, Saadians and Alevis). These cities were mainly associated with specific kings and sultans that they built in order to be the capitals of their countries and to distinguish them sometimes from the previous capitals through undertaking massive and luxurious urban and military construction.
The imperial cities of the contemporary period are considered major areas of tourist attraction in Morocco because of the outstanding architectural, historical and engineering masterpieces they contain.
- Marrakech: Marrakesh is the capital of an empire with distinction, as it is the centre of the three greatest empires that appeared in the Islamic West, the Almohads and the Sa’dis.
- Fez: Fez was the capital of the state during the era of administration and Mernin, and it also remained the capital of the country until the borders of 1912 AD
- Rabat: Rabat first played the role of the capital during the reign of the Almohad caliph Yaqoub al-Mansur in the 12th century AD, before becoming the capital of Morocco since 1912.
- Meknes: It is called the Ismaili capital, as it was the capital of Morocco during the reign of the Sultan, Moulay Ismail, this powerful Sultan was able to expand the borders of Morocco in the seventeenth century AD to the banks of the Senegal River in the south.
