Add to Flipboard Magazine.

I am a massive fan of Moroccan architecture, are you?

In this blog I’d like to show you the most beautiful houses, guest houses and terraces in Morocco I have been to. Most of them are a fusion of Moroccan tradition with a European touch – designed by European expats who wanted to mix influences and styles.

Here you can see the outcome:
