Marrakech, the red city

“Life is a journey and traveling aid to live”

(Bereber proverb)

 

The Medina of Marrakech seems taken out of another era a magnificent example of medieval Islamic town planning stage, earning him recognition as a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1985. Their walls with its nine gates surrounding it, preserve its secrets and the modus vivendi of the inhabitants, and enclose within the ancient city the largest souk of the country. You will be able to wander through its streets and alleys, as the square of Spices or neighborhood dyers working in an artisanal way.

The most popular entrance to the medina is certainly the Djemaa-el-Fna, one of the busiest square in Africa and worldwide. This square with its ceaseless activity is the heart of the city, where throughout the day and night lively groups of gnauas musicians, storytellers, jugglers and fire eaters, fortune tellers, tooth puller, trainers of monkeys, rogues follow one another and at sunset it becomes a huge outdoor restaurant to sit and eat and enjoy the show.

Among the recommendations to visit outside the medina, you can not miss the Menara Gardens with the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and the Majorelle Gardens, a burst of color on a quiet scenary (Ver video).
