Marrakech (city) – located about 3 hours (242 km.) south of Casablanca, Marrakech is not only a fantastic city, it is also a symbol of the Morocco that once was, and which still survives here. The streets of the old and pink city have been too narrow to allow effective introduction of cars. And tourists searching for the “real” Morocco have turned the medieval structures of Marrakech into good business.
Marrakech is certainly a city of history, and all with a few days to pass here must see the beautiful, large mosque and madrasa of Ben Yussef inside the large suuq, that begins at the northern side of Jemaa l-Fna. For deeper understanding of Moroccan architecture, the Almoravid koubba 20-30 meters south of the mosque of Ben Yussef. Palaces like El-Bahia, El Badi, and Dar Si Said were built to please the senses, while those who cannot get enough of gardens can still feel old greatness in Agdal garden.
