The Kingdom of Morocco is the most westerly of the North African countries. It has Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines, and a rugged mountain interior.The English name “Morocco” originates from Spanish “Marruecos” or the Portuguese “Marrocos”, from medieval Latin “Morroch”, which referred to the name of the former Almoravid and Almohad capital, Marrakesh. In Persian Morocco is still called “Marrakesh”. Until recent decades, Morocco was called “Marrakesh” in Middle Eastern Arabic. In Turkish, Morocco is called “Fas” which comes from the ancient Idrisid and Marinid capital, Fez
