Location

Marrakech is a bustling city in Morocco, situated in North West Africa. Famous for its parks. The ancient section of the city, known as the medina, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985.

Surrounded by a vast palm grove the medina in Marrakech is called the “red city” because of its buildings red clay, which were built centuries ago. The heart of the medina is Jamaa el-Fna square, a vibrant marketplace. Nearby is the 12th-century Kutubiyyah (Koutoubia) Mosque with its 253-foot (77-metre) minaret, built by Spanish captives. The 16th-century Saadian Mausoleum, the 18th-century Dar el-Beïda Palace (now a hospital), and the 19th-century Bahia royal residence reflect the city’s historical growth.

Much of the medina is still surrounded by 12th-century walls; among the surviving gates to the medina, the stone Bab Agnaou is particularly notable. The modern quarter, called Gueliz, to the west of the medina was developed under the French control.

Morocco enjoys a hot summer climate and enjoys a mild sunny Winter.
