Video: Icons from Morocco

Asilah, a Phoenician trade base and a Portuguese fort @Mohamed Ezz Aldin

Tanger, Asilah, Casablanca and Rabat are four Moroccan cities represent a cultural mixture between the Mediterranean and North Africa. Mohamed Ezz Aldin, Egyptian photographer and radio presenter, shares with EMAJ magazine his latest video from a recent trip to Africa’s closest point to Europe.

The video shows photos taken in 4 Moroccan cities, Casablanca, Tanger, Rabat and Asilah. Ezz Aldin provided his photo stream with modern Moroccan music.

The slide show focuses on architecture and cultural icons which can be found in most Mediterranean countries.

The highlight of the video is the scenes taken in Asilah which is a tiny Moroccan town with much Euro Mediterranean influence.

Asilah’s history dates back to 1500 B.C., when the Phoenicians used it as a base for trade.

The Portuguese conquered the city during the 15th century, but John III King of Portugal later decided to abandon it because of an economic crisis in 1549.
