THE BEAUTY OF MARRAKESH

Talk about places to visit, then Marrakesh is one of the beautiful places to visit.

Marrakesh, is the fifth largest city in Morocco. A former imperial city in western Morocco and major economic center and home to mosques, palaces, and gardens. The medina is a densely packed, walled medieval city dating to the Berber Empire, with mazelike alleys where thriving souks (marketplaces) sell traditional textiles, pottery, and jewelry. The symbol of the city, and visible for miles, is the Moorish minaret of 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque.

Food vendors line Djemaa el-Fna, a broad square where storytellers and musicians perform. The Musée de Marrakech, in a former palace, displays Moroccan decorative objects, coins & contemporary art. Ben Youssef Madrasa is an Islamic landmark ornamented with zellige tile work and carved cedar. Also notable are Bahia Palace, with its large former harem; the monumental ruins of 16th-century El Badi Palace; and the Saadian Tombs royal mausoleum. Outside the old city is the modern district of Ville Nouvelle, and notable gardens such as the Agdal, Majorelle and Menara.
