It is separated from Europe by the Strait of Gibraltar. Its neighboring countries are Algeria to the east (the Algerian border is closed), south Western Sahara (he held for the most part) and northern Spain, with whom he has strong trade ties and shares both sea and land borders (Spanish autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla). There are other Spanish enclaves on the Mediterranean coast (Rock of Alhucemas, Penon de Velez de la Gomera, and the Chafarinas Islands).

Marrakech Tourism:
Without being the capital of the country, nor the most geographically accessible for European tourists, Marrakech has become the preferred time to start discovering the African continent. Tourism in Marrakech had significant growth in recent years, with the consequent development of hotel infrastructure and services, and currently more than two million tourists visit annually.
What are the attractions of Marrakech? To begin, the medina, the historic heart of the city, is the largest and most populous country.
