Marrakech, also known as the “Red City,” is a royal city in Morocco. It was found in 1062 by Yusuf ibn Tashfin, the monarch of the Moroccan Almoravid dynasty. Following that, it became the Almoravid Empire’s imperial capital. The Almoravids built many Quranic schools and mosques in Marrakesh with Andalusian influences throughout the twelfth century. Due to its rich history and ancient architectural gems, it has become a popular tourist attraction. As a cultural and commercial hub, it is Morocco’s busiest city.
Tourists, on the other hand, are unable to visit Marrakesh without finding the city’s hidden gems. Jemaa El-Fna is the name given to the large open space in the heart of the medina. Snake charmers, street entertainers, and overzealous henna artists are among the most popular attractions in Marrakech, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In addition, the Sultan Ahmed el-ruins are located in El-Badi Place. Mansour’s Subterranean gardens and beautiful ramparts surround it, with crumbling towers affording panoramic views of the medina. In addition, the Bahia Palace is one of Marrakech’s most interesting locales.
It was built in the late 1800s as the private residence of Grand Vizier Bou Ahmed. It features painted ceilings, zellige tiles, and a marble terrace, among other works of art and architecture. In addition, the Jardin Majorelle is a well-known Marrakech attraction created by French artist Jacques Majorelle. It’s a public villa with an Islamic art museum and a Berber museum with a collection of North African textiles.
