Christian convent

Midelt, Morocco

There are not many Christian centres in Morocco, but Kasbah Myriem is an exception, and quite interesting to visit. It is less than a kilometre out of town. There are 5 Franciscan monks living in the monastery, while 6 nuns live in a house right across the street. The monastery also runs a carpet workshop for local girls, producing excellent carpets sold at rather expensive prices. And of course, the convent is open for all non-Christians!
