Marrakech is the third largest city in Morocco and one of the four imperial cities. Lying at the foot of the Atlas mountains and just a few hours from the Sahara desert, it has a contrasting location and landscape. With magnificent palaces, historic museums, beautiful green gardens and great shopping culture, Marrakech offers many amazing tourist attractions.
Marrakech has a long history and displays the dynamic Berber towns with innumerable attractions which can lure visitors from all across the globe. It is divided into two distinct areas: the Medina and the Gueliz or Ville Nouvelle. The Medina is the old walled district full of street vendors. It is the beating heart of Marrakech, with narrow passageways, colourful souks and shops full of character. The Medina of Marrakech is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Gueliz or Ville Nouvelle is the new part of the town with modern restaurants, shopping outlets and modern infrastructure.
Marrakech is mainly known for Djemma el Fna and the Souks. The Jemaa el-Fnaa is the main square of the city and the best-known square in Africa. The Souks of Marrakech are the largest traditional markets in Morocco and sell everything the place is known for. The city is also known for its traditional and modern gardens, palaces, mansions and other luxurious residences. Marrakech showers its visitors with splendour and sensations between tradition and modernity. It is this contrast between the old and the new that makes this city so interesting.
