Larache is located in the north-western part of Morocco along the Atlantic coast. This town of approximately 200,000 inhabitants is a small beach town; its fishing port plays an important role in the city’s economy.
Larache enjoys a pleasant climate throughout the year. Summers are spared from excessive heat because of the cooling winds blowing in from the ocean. Winters are mild with the average temperature at 15°C; rainfall occurs during this season.
Owing to its strategic location close to the European mainland, it became an important trading port very early in its history. The Arabs managed to hold on to Larache for many centuries and even fortified it to keep the Spaniards and other Europeans at bay. It was briefly colonised by Spain in the early half of the twentieth century.
