At one point, many Sefardic communities followed the Mishneh Torah. As time went on, it seems that the sefardim accepted the Beit Yosef. Besides for Yemenites, were there any communities that, until recently, mainly followed the halachot of the Mishneh Torah? Someone told me that there was a city in Morocco that completely followed the Rambam. Does anybody know if that is correct?
