For many years Marrakech competed with Fes for the right to be called the capital of Morocco. In this struggle, one city or another won. Marrakech welcomes travellers with shades of ochre and beige stone in the sun, red walls and charming atmosphere. Undoubtedly, the red city has won the nickname of the capital of tourism in the country and that is thanks to the huge numbers of tourists that visit and start their tours from it.
Marrakech is home to the largest square in the whole of Morocco, the Jama’a el Fna, is spread out in the city’s centre. The best time to visit the square is in the evening. As the sun goes down, a giant bazaar unfolds on the square, cafes open and street artists, acrobats, dancers, drummers and magicians begin their work. The show with the spell of snakes gathers a huge crowd of spectators.
Meanwhile, there are other interesting attractions in the city with our 8 days tour from Casablanca. Here you can see the great mosque of Koutoubia, the Bahia Palace and Saadian tombs.
You can find Morocco’s most beautiful mosque in Marrakech. It was built in the 12th century by order of the local emir. The best architects worked to create this architectural masterpiece. The height of the minaret is about 77 metres. Inside the minaret, there is a wide staircase where you can easily go up on horseback. The mosque can accommodate up to 20,000 believers at a time, making it the largest mosque in Africa.
