Welcome to The Shrine of Sidi Abderrahman

Located past the ocean-side neighbourhood of the Corniche, the Shrine of Sidi Abderrahman is built on a rock and is only accessible at low tide. Non-Muslims are not allowed to visit the shrine, but travellers wishing to explore the tiny neighbourhood around it are permitted to do so. Most visitors opt to catch a glimpse of the shrine and its breathtaking white walls while walking along the beach.


Language
Arabic is the official language, but eight other languages are also spoken including Berber, French and Spanish. English is generally understood in the tourist areas, but French is the most widely spoken.
Money

The unit of currency is the Moroccan Dirham (MAD), which is divided into 100 centimes. ATMs are available in the larger towns, but can be unreliable; currency can be exchanged at banks or official bureaux de changes, which are also widespread in major towns. Dirhams cannot be obtained or exchanged outside Morocco and receipts must be retained as proof of legal currency exchange, as well as in order to re-exchange money when departing. Major credit cards are accepted in the larger shops, hotels and restaurants. Travellers cheques can be used in tourist areas, but are not prevalent; they are best taken in Euros or Pounds Stirling.
