For many years, Marrakech contended with Fes for the title of the Moroccan capital. In this conflict, one city or another emerged victoriously. Marrakech greets visitors with ochre and brownstone in the sun, red buildings, and a lovely ambiance. Without a doubt, the red city has earned the title of the country’s tourism hub, owing to the large number of visitors that arrive and begin their travels there.
Marrakech is home to Morocco’s largest plaza, the Jama’a el Fna, which is spread out in the city center. The square is best visited in the evening. As the sun sets, a massive market appears on the plaza, cafés open, and street performers, acrobats, dancers, drummers, and magicians begin their performances. The spectacle with the snakes’ enchantment draws a large throng of onlookers.
Meanwhile, with our 8 days tour from Casablanca, there are additional noteworthy sights in the city. The magnificent mosque of Koutoubia, the Bahia Palace, and Saadian tombs may all be found here.
Morocco’s most magnificent mosque may be seen in Marrakech. It was erected under the order of the local emir in the 12th century. The finest architects collaborated to build this architectural marvel. The minaret stands around 77 meters tall. Inside the minaret, there is a large stairway that may be readily climbed on horseback. The mosque can hold up to 20,000 worshippers at one time, making it Africa’s largest mosque.
