Morocco National Anthem
Root of the free,
Rising place of the Lights.
Forum of glory and its protector.
May you perpetuate as its forum and its protector.
May you live among the homelands,
As an address for grandeur
Filling every garden.
conveyed by every tongue.
With the spirit,
With the body,
Your son has come,
To answer your call.
In my mouth and in my blood,
Your love stirred up as light and fire.
Let’s go brothers!
Heading for grandeur,
Making the world witness,
That we here perpetually live,
With the motto:
God, homeland, king.

Interesting facts
Did you know that Morocco is an African country with a very young population? The majority of its inhabitants, no more and no less than around 70%, are under the age of 30.

Morocco is the top tourist destination in all of Africa. Each year it receives more than 10 million tourists.

If you thought the camel was the country’s primary mode of transportation, you were way off, it’s the donkey. In fact, in Rissani, there is a market just for buying and selling donkeys.

We all know that the largest film set in the world is in Hollywood. However, what you might not have known is that the second largest is in Morocco. Films that have been shot here include Prince of Persia, Sahara and The Mummy.

Did you know that the Sahara desert is the largest and warmest on the planet?

The blue houses of Chaouen are famous for their striking colour. Do you know why they are blue? Jewish refugees painted them this colour because they believed it kept the mosquitoes away.

The quality of Moroccan dates is excellent and that is why they are exported all over the world. More than 90,000 tons are exported each year.

If you are invited into a Moroccan home, don’t forget to take off your shoes. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see statues or paintings on the walls, this is customary in the homes of religious Moroccans.

Green tea is the most popular drink in the country. Some people drink tea at all hours since it is a sign of hospitality. One piece of advice: if you are offered tea, never refuse.

If there is one thing in Morocco, it’s palaces. One which is a must-see is the Villa Majorelle, a jewel of a palace built 90 years ago by the French painter Jacques Majorelle and later bought by the designer Yves Saint Laurent.
