Morocco is a country in North Africa that borders the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea and is characterized by Berber, Arab and European cultural influences. Marrakesh's medina, a labyrinthine neighborhood from the medieval era, offers various leisure activities in the Jamaa el Fna square and in the souks (markets), where ceramic objects, jewelery and metal lamps are sold. The Oudaïa kasbah in the capital Rabat is a 12th-century royal fortress overlooking the sea.
