Moulay Idriss

Moulay Idriss

Moulay Idriss is the holiest town in Morocco for Muslims.  The first king and most venerated saint (who was also the great grandson of the prophet Mohammed) is buried in this hallowed spot, which is visited throughout the year by pilgrims - a trip here is worth a fifth of the hajj to Mecca. You cannot enter Moulay Idriss's shrine in the heart of the town, but you can get an excellent aerial view of it, with its distinctive green roofs, from a vantage point on a nearby hillside.
