Maghreb is the name of the region of North Africa north of the Sahara and west of the Nile. The lands of the Maghreb are generally considered to be the coastal plains of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and western Libya. The word originates from Arabic and literally “where the sun sets, the West”. Inhabitants of the region have long had commercial and cultural ties across the Mediterranean Sea to the inhabitants of the regions of Southern Europe and Western Asia. These trade relations can be dated at least to the Phoenicians in the 1st millennium BC.
