Marrakech is the sexy younger sister to Casablanca and Fes. Set in the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains in the southern, central part of Morocco, Marrakech is a city that holds a mystique not shared by many other cities.
Founded in 1062, there is a lot of 12th century architecture and when you walk through the medina you can’t help but wonder at what century you are in. From lush and sculpted gardens, stunning riads (former homes turned hotel), sparkling pools, sublime rooftops and ancient alleyways, Marrakech has the sights, the sounds, the smells that will completely shatter the senses. A city that is slowly modernizing in the new section, called Gueliz, when you enter the medina, you enter a whole new world.
A stop in Marrakech will not disappoint!
