This botanic garden was created in the 1920s by French artist Jacques Majorelle, and was later owned by Yves Saint-Laurent. There are 15 species of birds living in the gardens — and the iconic cobalt blue has inspired many interior designers.
From spices to colored lamps to leather goods, the Marrakech Souk is packed with different things for you to buy. Get ready to barter!
This is the perfect place to stop and refuel after shopping in the souks. With views over the colorful stalls below, it's a great place to unwind and cool off.
This grand palace is close to the souks and well worth a visit. Contemplate the ornate designs of the walls and the huge expanses of gardens. Plus, inside the Bahia Palace you can enjoy a more serene atmosphere than the busy streets nearby, a great contrast to your souk visit.
This Madrasa (educational institution) is the largest in Morocco. The college was founded in the 14th century and there are over 100 small dormitories for the students that would have studied the Koran here. The courtyard is elaborately carved in cedar wood and marble.
A visit to Marrakech isn´t complete without a session at the Hammam — this one is modern and doesn't cost the earth.
Kosy Bar is a welcoming place for travelers and expats. Expect good food and a laid back atmosphere.
A large market and a cultural meeting place, everyone who visits Marrakech should see this square. Jemaa el Fna is filled with different stalls in the day and open air restaurants at night. Look for the Berber storytellers and snake charmers at one end of the square.
