About Marrakech

Marrakech's dominant marketplace -- the Djemaa el Fna -- has been the meeting place for food vendors, snake charmers, Berber storytellers and travelers for hundreds of years. From the marketplace, windy streets and alleyways -- all pedestrianized, save for the odd donkey cart or motor scooter -- curl around the median for miles, offering outdoor restaurants, hundreds of shops and Marrakech's answer to a hotel: the riad (a handful of beautifully tiled and painted rooms clustered around an interior courtyard, often with a pool). The call to prayer from the minaret of the statuesque Koutoubia Mosque adds to the allure of Marrakech's fascination. Visitors round out a day with a visit to a harem (Turkish bath), the sumptuous Majorelle gardens or a stroll through the Jewish quarter. Marrakech gets close enough to the fabled Atlas Mountains that adventurous souls often head into the mountains to explore stunning natural landscapes like the Ourika River Valley.

Originally known as Jardin Majorelle, Yves Saint Laurent was once a private villa built by the French artist Jacques Majorelle, and was later bought and lived by French fashion guru Yves Saint Laurent for several years. Now open to Marrakech's popular attractions, the park is full of rare plants, surrounded by a blue villa, as well as the tombstones of Eve Saint Laurent and a small cafe.

Square
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    

Place Jemaa el-Fnaa is situated in the old town of Marrakech, both a civic plaza and a market. Because once night falls, it is full of entertainment, various food stalls and stands fill the entire square, snake charmers and various traditional performances bring in many tourists. There are some two or three-story buildings by the square as restaurants or coffee bars. Not far from the square is the Koutoubia Mosque, so the whole square is full of a deep Islamic atmosphere.

Koutoubia Mosque
4.5/5

Mosque

The Koutoubia Mosque is a landmark in Marrakech. Compared with other mosques, the uniqueness of the Koutoubia Mosque is that when the minaret was built, nearly 10,000 bags of precious oil were mixed in the mud of the bonded stones. Spices, the mosque exudes a rich aroma, so far still scented, so it is also known as the "fragrant tower."

Musée de Marrakech

Museum

The former Marrakesh Museum was a palace that was built to withstand the invasion of foreign enemies and was an Andalusian building. The exterior walls of the Marrakech Museum are brick red and clearly marked outside. The museum is an Arabian-style courtyard surrounded by large carved pillars. The ground marble is elegant and delicate, and a large pool is standard on this courtyard. The current museum mainly exhibits Moroccan art, and can see celebrity paintings, sculptures and cultural works by Berbers and Arabs.
