  • In your visit to Marrakech, you simply can't miss a nighttime visit to Jamaa el-Fnaa. I'd suggest heading around 11pm, more or less, and having a tea in one of the terraces (rooftop, preferably) of the bars that circle the square an...
  • Outside the walls of the city, we found the Majorelle Garden, a botanical garden in the heart of downtown Marrakech. This garden was built by the painter Jacques Majorrelle and therefore, he created it as he would a work of art. The...

  • It was the minaret of this mosque which we used to guide us through Marrakesh, at least when we were in the Medina. It is the most important mosque, the inspiration to build the Giralda, and non-Muslims can not enter. However, they ...

  • The Menara gardens mirror the Muslim Paradise on earth. It´s not difficult to imagine how they used to be in their moments of glory and splendor, when the rulers of Marrakech endowed them with all the luxuries and technological adva...
  • The Bahia Palace, in my opinion, is the most spectacular official monument to see in Marrakesh, even ahead of the Ben Youssef Madrasa. I'm not much of a history buff to be honest, so I can't tell you much on that end, but I can tell...
  • It is the headquarters of the Omar Benjelloum Foundation. The exterior of this building does not compare with the beauty of its interior. This is a feature of the most sumptuous buildings in Marrakesh. Perhaps this is to avoid the e...

  • Walking through the medina in Marrakech is like travelling back in time, back to another era that you could not imagine existed so close to home. The first few hours or the first few days you can not help but have your mouth hanging...
  • El Badi Palace is a wonder that once was. Apparently, it was once covered in gold, inlays of ruby and turquoise, and intricate tile-work and sculptures. During a sacking of the city centuries ago, all of that was stripped and the pa...
  • Marrakech is a city that it surrounded by a wall topped by towers with a length of 19 kilometers. They are made of adobe and have a characteristic reddish color, as do the buildings found in this city. The most beautiful areas of th...
