We move to Marrakech , one of the most important cities in Morocco where you will find many things to see. We offer you a small guide with those essential places that you cannot miss when you visit this place, which has the largest traditional market in the country and one of the busiest squares on the African continent and perhaps in the whole world …
1. The Jamaa el Fna square
This is the square I was referring to at the beginning. It is the nerve center of Marrakech , a place where thousands of people congregate, including visitors, acrobats, storytellers, teachers who expose their wisdom to the public, snake charmers, street vendors … People of all kinds of origin that offer what he has or knows how to do. You will also find food stalls.
2. The souk of Marrakech
The souk of Marrakech becomes a must for tourists to shop for typical products of the country. Streets full of stalls form a labyrinth in which Moroccans also do their daily shopping. It goes from the north of the Jamaa el Fna square occupying dozens of streets, and here it is possible to buy food, clothing, crafts … in stalls that are grouped by guilds.
3. Koutoubia Mosque
It is the most important mosque in the city and at the time, when it was built, it was also the world’s largest mosque . It is a place of worship for the Islamic religion that was built in the 12th century as a representation of Almohad art. It is located southwest of the Jamaa el Fna square and is the tallest building in Marrakech.
4. Majorelle Garden
It was created in 1924 and in it you can find exotic plants , water sources and a lot of spectacular corners. It was bought in 1980 by the designer Yves Saint-Laurent, who restored it and incorporated more plant species.
