THE CITY OF MARRAKESH
No longer the secret of the travel elite that it was fifteen years ago, Marrakech is now recognized as one of the world’s great cities. With the design flair of Paris, the ethnic diversity of New York, the commercial heartbeat of Hong Kong, and a history to rival any city in Europe, Marrakech is above all a city of heart and soul–a city of sunlight on rough pink walls, of fragrant, richly-hued spices, and of rose petals floating in slowly trickling fountains.
The defining landmark of Marrakech is the 12th-century tiled minaret of the Koutoubia mosque, and there is no better place to begin your journey into this tantalizing city. From here, you will begin to explore the ancient pink-walled medina.
Today, it provides ever-changing entertainment for Moroccans and foreigners alike, reaching its climax at sunset when the square is alive with storytellers, healers, snake charmers, acrobats, and countless food stalls. Walk through the square to experience its intensity and then, if you wish, enjoy the view from the terrace of a rooftop café.
