Tourism in Marrakesh
Marrakech, with more than one and a half million inhabitants, and also known as the red city, was founded by the Almoravides and its Muslim and Andalusi culture is present in every corner of the city. Its centre is classified as a world heritage site by the UNESCO and the imperial city is situated in an enviable location in the country. Its surroundings are marked by its Mediterranean climate, due to its situation between the Sahara and the Atlas Mountains, and this has made Marrakech a place of passage for traders, artists and nowadays, tourists.
The charms of the city include its important Medina, with its maze-like streets and bustling atmosphere. The colourful souq and the busy area of Djamaa el Fna square are the areas that are most visited and also the most attractive parts of the city. But this seductive city has many other interesting sites, and is also the starting point for excursions to Casablanca, Agadir, Essaouira, the Atlas Mountains or the desert. Other interesting visits to the city include the city walls, the Royal Palace, the Menar Garden, the Ben Youssef Coran School, the Mellah or Jewish quarter or the Saadi Tomb.
A city filled with sensations, where getting lost in its maze of bustling streets is a unique experience.
