Morocco is characterized by a great diversity of landscapes. The explanation for this is, as can also be observed in Algeria, the presence of the Atlas Mountains, which acts as a climatic barrier and filter. Morocco has two mountainous massifs: the Atlas, subdivided into Middle-Atlas in the north, High-Atlas in the centre and Anti-Atlas in the south, and the Rif, a mountainous massif forming part of the Betic Cordilleras system and facing the Mediterranean. The highest point in Morocco (and North Africa) is Jbel Toubkal, which rises to 4,167 m. As for the Rif, it culminates at 2,450 m with the Djebel Tidirhine.
