Our trip will focus on Mudéjar art, a mix of styles that appeared between the Moorish invasions and the Spanish Reconquista.

    Our excursion will take you to the most emblematic spots in the city. The city's name reveals some of its history: Casablanca is the Hispanicized version of what was originally Casa Branca—Portuguese for “white house,” the color of the homes in the old town. Modern-day Casablanca offers a balanced mix of ancient and contemporary architecture, as reflected in the exterior of the Hassan II Mosque. Towering above the Atlantic Ocean, its 700-feet tall (210 m) minaret stands as a city landmark. Our tour will then take us to Mohammed V Square, surrounded by the Court House, Central Post Office and, the Wilaya Building. Our final stop will be the scenic La Corniche oceanfront, offering beautiful panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean.

    We'll leave from Malaga and head for Granada. Granada is the former capital of the last Islamic realm in southern Iberia—a kingdom that left its mark on the architectural heritage of the area you will discover today. We will visit the Alhambra, whose translation from Arabic—The Red One—refers to the sun-dried bricks used to build the fortress's outer walls. This true wonder of Moorish art stands as one of the most prestigious testimonies of Muslim presence in Spain. We'll then wander through the gorgeous gardens and courtyards of the Generalife, the former summer palace of the Nasrid rulers.
    Enjoy free time after lunch in a local restaurant.

    Rabat, the capital city of Morocco, enjoys an ideal location on the Atlantic coast and an exceptional place in the country's history. As one of four Imperial Cities, Rabat brims with features so unique that the entire area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We'll visit the Chellah medieval fortified necropolis, built by the Marinids over the ruins of an ancient Roman colony and part of a complex that included a mosque, minaret, and royal tombs. Today, the location has departed from its original purpose and has been used as a music venue since 2005. Afterwards, we'll gaze at Hassan Tower, the minaret of an incomplete mosque and the symbol of Rabat. Commissioned near the end of the 12thcentury by Caliph Abu Yusuf Yaqub al-Mansur, the tower was intended as a minaret of what should have been the largest mosque in the western Muslim world. Construction stopped after the Caliph's death, and the minaret was left standing at a height of 140 ft (40 m). The incomplete tower, what remains of the mosque, and the modern Mausoleum of Mohammed V form an important historical and tourist complex in Rabat.
