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.

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.

108 Reviews
The Koutoubia Mosque is a landmark in Marrakech.

Trip Moments

The Bahia Palace, built at the end of the 19th century, was the largest and most magnificent palace building in Morocco at the time. The word "Bahia" in the name means "wisdom." Located in the old streets of Marrakech, it looks unremarkable from the outside, but it has the most magnificent rooms, beautiful atrium, mosaic fountain, green glazed tiles in the sun, and large and small windows are decorated with Arabian-inspired grate wood-carved. All the doors, windows and lush trees filled courtyards are worth a good look. The biggest impression of this palace is that it is very big. Once I entered I was mesmerized. The decoration and layout are not very characteristic. When we went there, they were doing a small photo exhibition, but it was very good.

Another highlight of Marrakech is the Bahia Palace, which is also one of my favorite royal palaces. With exquisite carvings and deep twists and turns, this palace is beautiful. Built in the late 19th century, the Bahia Palace was the largest and most magnificent palace building in Morocco at the time, but it was not the actual palace. Because the master Moussa was not the king, he was the big Vizier of the Sultanate. Davisil is the prime minister of the Islamic state. It took 1,000 craftsmen from Fez, and took seven years, to built a magnificent and beautiful palace like this. We did not have much time in hand; otherwise I would have definitely wandered around this place in the morning. It is really very beautiful!
