Overview

Excursion to Moulay Driss Zerhoun

Is a holy city that hosts the mausoleum of Idriss I, founder of Morocco with its Zaouia, a place of pilgrimage for many Muslims, during their annual summer Mussen, the most important in Morocco. Its founder Idriss, grandson of Mohammed, fled Baghdad in 786 and settled in nearby Volubilis, from where he founded this city to begin the Islamization of the Berbers of Morocco. It is 30 km from Meknes, located at an altitude of 550 meters, under the Jebel Zerhoun. Capital of the province in the prefecture of Meknes, it has been declared a cultural property by UNESCO. Its white farms stretch across the mountain. The Sanctuary of Idris Iis the main attraction of the city. It was built by Moulay Ismail in the 18th century and restored by Sultan Moulay Abderrahmane in the 19th century and in the 20th century by Mohamed V and Hassan II. It is forbidden to non-Muslims and has a cylindrical minaret, unique in Morocco, with ceramic decorations that reproduce verses from the Koran. Its interior is richly decorated with stained glass tiles and polychrome mosaics. The patio has columns of different styles and the burial chamber is decorated in its lower part with rosettes and polychrome tiles.
