Meknes, (Morocco) was founded in the 11th century by the Almoravids as a military settlement, became a capital under Sultan Moulay Ismaïl (1672–1727). The founder of the Alawite dynasty. The sultan turned it into an impressive city in Spanish-Moorish style, surrounded by high walls with great doors, where the harmonious blending of the Islamic and European styles of the 17th-century Maghreb is still apparent today.Sue Felan
