Street scenes

Moulay Idriss, Morocco


Moulay Idriss, Morocco


Moulay Idriss' streets are simple in their designs, as if the presence of the holy obliges every house building to respectfully reject any temptation to build something that could challenge the beauty of the religious buildings. Yet, this is the main charm of Moulay Idriss, its simplicity and crudeness.
