Holidays and trading hours in Morocco

Holidays and trading hours in Morocco

Local time in Morocco is one hour less than in Spain. In summer, two hours less.

Now, since we changed DST until you change them a week goes by where we are two hours apart. A past that period they change to summer time, and then resume a time difference with us.

When Ramadan begins, again change the time and have two hours ahead of us, and are already well until we change the last Saturday of October.

All this sounds like Macabeo roll but it's true.

Open, in winter, Monday through Thursday from 8:30 to 12:30 and 14:15 to 16:30, Friday from 8:30 to 11:15 hrs.
Open, in summer, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 and 14:15 to 16:30 hrs.

Open generally Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:00 and 15:00 to 18:00. In the medinas, some may be closed and not open ost late Friday and open on Sundays. On Saturday morning almost all open.
