Marrakesh, the imperial city nicknamed as the "Pearl of the South" cannot remain indifferent, but you must know the address to soak up its atmosphere. The main square Jemaa el Fna and its agitation, day or night, alone is worth the trip. But it is its colorful and noisy souks that we just come to walk here for, probably the richest, most diverse, most exciting that we know. Thousands of small businesses join together in an amazing atmosphere. And tourism, often criticized, has greatly facilitated the discovery of a flourishing craft today.
Marrakesh is also architecturally fascinating, mostly stored in the medina, with its magnificent mosques and remarkable palaces offer traveler the intoxication of an unforgettable spell.
Marrakesh is also the gateway of southern Morocco. Its ambiance, its colors and its atmosphere reminiscent of the desert is not far away.
Despite all, the abundant vegetation, indeed, the public parks, gardens and fruit trees along major thoroughfares have always been perceived by Moroccans as challenges to the dry conditions.
The imperial city is like a jewel set in the natural surroundings that form around the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas Mountains.
Marrakesh has many monuments that the visit is inevitable: the Jamaa el-Fna square, Ben Youssef Medersa, the Qoubba Almoravides, Saadians graves, or the Shrob ou shouf (Chrob ou chouf) fountain, the Koutoubia Mosque, and so on.
In addition, Marrakesh organizes numerous festivals including the Marrakesh Popular Arts Festival, in July and the International Film Festival of Marrakesh, the best reward for Moroccan and foreign production of long and short films.
A trip to Marrakesh is above all an opportunity to relax in a friendly atmosphere. If you rent a Riyadh, typical Moroccan style house and are free to visit the outskirts of the city, to take a drive through the desert is not far away or even to go skiing if traveling in winter. The nearest ski resort is 74 km.
Finally, take advantage of your travel to Marrakesh, to take care of your body taking a walk by the Hammam. Most of the modern hotels in Marrakesh have their own Hammam. Please note however that the price could be quintuple!
