A look at Marrakech

Africa > Morocco > Marrakech

The 'Red City'

Marrakech, the ‘red city’ instantly brings to mind an exotic image of legend and fantasy.  
The city is divided into two main parts: the Medina and Ville Nouvelle. Time appears to have stood still behind the dusky pink walls of the Medina. Here you will be able to glimpse a traditional Moroccan way of life. In contrast Ville Nouvelle has all the modern amenities and business facilities that you would expect to find in any international city. 
The heart of the Medina is Djemaa el-Fna, an irregular 'square' where everything seems to happen and the place to which tourists are drawn again and again to soak up the carnival-like environment.  
Snake charmers, magic potions, hidden palaces – all of these are possible in Marrakech. You will become lost amongst its windy streets, entranced by the magic and colour of this incredible city.
One of the many ways to soak up the sights and sounds of Marrakech is in one of the hundreds of horse-drawn carriages, known as caleches that are for hire. But a real treat is to walk through the Medina's souks and plunging into the hurly burly maelstrom of passages. Here you will be engulfed in the Moroccan way where tradesmen ply various crafts, from cloth dying, copper beating, and leather working to herbalists, perfumers and slipper makers. And where shopkeepers try and coax passing tourists into looking at their glorious array of colourful crafts. More info
