Morocco is one of the most popular destinations in Africa and its four royal cities, Fez, Meknes, Marrakech and Rabat, each have an irresistible charm. It is a country of captivating landscapes and cities with an extraordinary cultural heritage, as well as exceptional seaside destinations on the Atlantic side. Set back from the seaside resorts, Morocco’s mountainous hinterland is characterised by high, barren plateaus and green valleys overlooked by majestic Berber kasbahs that look like fortresses.
The royal city of Marrakech is considered the most beautiful city in the Maghreb. The medina – the old city with its rich traces of Almohad culture, labyrinthine streets, colourful souks and magnificent centuries-old palaces – and the new city built under the French protectorate, are both equally beautiful. The Jemaa el Fna square buzzes all day and night with exotic and colourful spectacles, attracting Marrakech’s visitors like a magnet. The Atlas Mountains rise majestically in the distance and form a striking backdrop to the ochre city.
Marrakech is one of the four imperial cities of Morocco and has around 930,000 inhabitants. The ramparts of Marrakech form an imposing compound that covers a distance of 10 kilometres and is made of pisé – a mixture of clay and lime. This building material has a fascinating cultural legacy and many of Marrakech’s buildings attest to this heritage, such as the Bahia Palace, the Ben Youssef Medersa, the mausoleums of the Saadian princes and the Koutoubia, to name but a few.
