Morocco is a primarily urban country. Currently nearly 60% of the population lives in a city. This trend of urbanization continues to grow at a rate of 2% every year, as more and more Moroccans move out of the countryside into the cities. Morocco is full of beautiful and diverse landscapes, making it easy to overlook the cities and the millions of Moroccans who live there.
