Things to Do in Marrakech

Marrakech is a fantastic gateway to Morocco’s many wonders. From here, you can enjoy a wide range of tours and excursions to see what else the country has to offer. Before you leave the city, however, you should be sure to make sure that you are aware of all the things to do in Marrakech – in the city itself. To help you plan your explorations in the city, here are some of the amazing things to see and things to do in Marrakech:

Marrakech Medina

This is where most visitors to Morocco will end up – a chaotic crowd fills the busting narrow streets, haggling at market stalls, getting lost in the maze of alleyways, watching musicians, performers and snake charmers. Marrakech Medina is an assault on the senses, but it is no less magical for that. Begin your explorations on Jemaa el-Fnaa – the main square of the city.

Majorelle Gardens

This garden, designed by artist Jacques Majorelle, is crammed full with exotic plants and water features. It is a delightful place to escape from the crowds and enjoy a little respite from the heat in the heart of the city. Here you will also find a fascinating museum which will teach you a little about local Berber culture.

Bahia Palace

One of the main, historic sites of the city, Bahia Palace is an ornate structure dating from the 19th Century. It has 160 rooms, several courtyards, and around 8 acres of pleasant gardens. This is most certainly a must-see attraction. It was built to be the greatest palace of its time, and the name translates as ‘brilliance’, which, as you will see when you visit, is surely an apt description.

Koutoubia Mosque

This large mosque with its minaret and garden is another of the important historic sites in the city, and its largest religious building. It is in the Almohad style, and dates from the 12th Century. Five times a day, one voice rises above the din below as the muezzin calls the faithful to prayer from the top of the mosque’s minaret.

El Badi Palace

The ruins of a royal residence, El Badi Palace was built in the 16th Century. Construction, for the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur began shortly after his ascension in 1578. The palace was paid for by a sum paid as ransom by the Portuguese after the Battle of the Three Kings. The architecture is Islamic in style.

These are just five of many enticing sites throughout the city. Visitors interested in history should also try to see the Almoravid Koubba, a notable domed building dating from the 12th Century, and Bab Agnaou, one of 19 grand city gates that were built here during the 1100s. If you have time, there are also a number of interesting museums throughout the city. There are also other attractive gardens where you can escape the city heat and crowds – at Agdal Gardens and Menora Gardens. And those attractions are just the beginning…
