Main attraction - Djemaa al Fna
The central marketplace in Marrakech is also a popular destination for tourists. Translated from Arabic, its name means ‘assembly of the dead’, for the medieval square was once an execution site. Today, it teems with little shops, street artists and merchants, as well as monkey handlers, jugglers, snake charmers and storytellers.
The Koutoubia Mosque is the largest mosque in Marrakech and also one of the oldest in Morocco. It features domed windows, a panel of ceramics, pointed pinnacles and decorative arches. Visit this Marrakech landmark and take a stroll through the vast gardens.
Bahia Palace – The gem of Marrakech
Another stunning garden can be found at Bahia Palace, which was built in the last 19th century and was said to be the largest palace at the time. Its name means ‘brilliance’. And the many mosaics and carved ceilings are indeed very impressive. Bahia Palace is one of Morocco’s finest palaces, and has been declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Have a wander through the internal courtyards and the 3 hectares of gardens, and enjoy one of Marrakech’s most beautiful attractions.
