Morocco 2017

Twenty-six Third and Fourth year students enjoyed a fabulous week taking in the sights and culture of Morocco during the Easter holidays. They visited several UNESCO world heritages sites, including the fishing port of Essaouira and the ancient village of Aït Benadhou, the setting for the film, Gladiator. As well as consuming copious amounts of tagine, students also drunk local Berber tea and learnt about Moroccan history and religion. The main highlight for many was the chance to travel into the Sahara Desert by camel and the trip concluded with a visit to Marrakesh.
