Located in central Morocco, Marrakech is one of the most well-known and most-loved cities in the country. Founded almost 1000 years ago, this ancient city contains Morocco’s largest souk where getting lost in the winding labyrinth of the medina is half the fun. Vibrant, colorful and with a chaotic charm, Marrakech is a city like no other.
Inside the medina walls, the narrow streets of Marrakech are bustling, and the Djemaa el-Fna square is at the heart of the action. Here you’ll find traditional musicians, acrobats, and a huge choice of mouth-watering Moroccan delicacies. Palaces and mosques are dotted around Marrakech and are prime examples of the breathtaking Islamic architecture found throughout the city.
To the north of the city lies the Palmeraie, an oasis of palm and olive trees with wonderful views of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains. Just 20 minutes from the busy streets of Marrakech, the Palmeraie is wonderfully tranquil and relaxing, and is the perfect haven away from the city’s lively medina.
