Morocco is a country located in North Africa. A land of spice-scented mystery and medieval kasbahs, Morocco puts your senses on high alert. The country is a magic carpet ride of extremes, from the searing Sahara to the snow-dusted High Atlas Mountains; from Marrakech's thronging medinas to petal-strewn serenity in a Fez riad. It's a place where spirituality rises with the first adhan (call to prayer), where cities are urban labyrinths and where runaway donkeys rule the souks. Bring a sense of adventure, a talent for haggling and patience for the long, bumpy but thrilling ride.

The University of al-Karaouine is a university located in Fes, Morocco. The mosque of Al-Karaouine was founded by Fatima al-Fihri in 859 with an associated mosque school or madrasa which has also been referred to as a university. It has been and continues to be one of the leading spiritual and educational centers of the Muslim world. It became a state university in 1963.
