Hidden Gems of Northern Morocco with Art Historian Dr. Keelan Overton

The enduring fascination of Morocco lies in its history as a crossroads of civilization that was influenced by the Romans, then the Arabs, more recently by French and Spanish colonialists, and enriched by links with tribal Africa. For centuries, travelers have been drawn to Morocco’s Moorish monuments, Islamic art and architecture, teeming bazaars, exquisitely tiled courtyards, and hauntingly beautiful palaces and gardens. The itinerary includes four-night hotel stays in three locations (Tangier, Chefchaoun, and Fez) with fascinating day trips—an enjoyable way to experience travelers' favorite places at a perfect pace. Dr. Keelan Overton, an Islamic art and architectural historian, will accompany the tour as the study leader along with a Moroccan guide. This tour is exclusive to SBMA and custom-designed for its Members, and offers behind-the-scenes access to private homes and collections. 

Dates are TBD.  This tour is being planned for fall 2021.  Details will be posted as they are confirmed.
