The City of Marrakech in Morocco


 
Travel & Tourism
The Independent, the popular British Magazine, made a list of the most romantic cities in the world. The marvelous Moroccan city of Marrakesh was one of the important cities included in the list. Nicknamed as the red city and the city of the palm trees, many travelers who tour Morocco usually visit Marrakesh for at least a couple of days.

Marrakesh is the largest Moroccan city in terms of population and it is located in the center of the kingdom. The population of Marrakesh was estimated to be around 900 thousand inhabitants in 2012. This is in addition to a large number of tourists who visit the city as part of their travel package to Morocco.

There are no historical records, in fact, that explains the name of the city of Marrakesh. It was described as the red city, the vast destination that blends the heat, the shades, the ice, and the palms all together. This distinctive ambience of the whole country grabs the attention of several vacationers to spend their holidays in Morocco.

Perhaps the most interesting sight in Marrakesh is the Jemaa el-Fnaa Arena. This is where travellers who tourMorocco watch snake charmers, story tellers, musicians, in addition to many other types of Moroccan folklore that represents the traditional heritage of the country.

The Jemaa El Fnaa was added to the UNESCO world heritage sites in 2001. In fact this square was established with the foundation of the city in 1070 AD. Since that date, Marrakesh became one of the most remarkable cities almost included in all tours to Morocco.

Located at the heart of the city of Marrakesh, Al Koutoubia Mosque is another interesting historical monument explored by many travelers who tour Morocco. The word Koutoubia is actually derived from the word Koutoubien, or the books’ sellers market.

The complex in fact consists of two ancient mosques. The first was established in 1147 on the ruins of a much older palace that belonged to the Moravids dynasty. The other was constructed in 1158 with 17 arcades coming out of the main prayer area that are directed towards the Qibla. The mosques welcome a lot of tourists who travel to Morocco.

Another notable historical site in Marrakesh is the Saadian Tombs. Established in the middle of the 16th century, this ancient necropolis hosts the buried bodies of most of the Saadis dynasty and their family members. Due to its wonderful decoration and historical significance, a visit to the tombs is usually included in many tours to Morocco.

The style of decoration and outline of the Saadian tombs were influenced by the Marinid tombs and mausoleums that were founded in Fes and Chellah. The decorations are featured with their Gypsum and tiles’ works that are characterized with the mixture between the Western and Andalusian styles of art and architecture that amaze travelers who spend holiday in Morocco.

The old walls and gates of Marrakesh are among the most wonderful monuments included in many tour packages to Morocco that include a visit to the city. There is for example the Dekala Gate that consists of two large towers with an entrance gate in the middle that leads to the ancient city. The Dekala Gate is one of the major entrance points to the ancient city.

There is also the Agnaou Gate that was established by the Almohad Dynasty, among many other gates, to protect the Qasba of Marrakesh. This gate is distinguished with its amazing style and marvelous architectural elements. Many travelers who spend their vacations in Morocco often visit this gatein particular.

There are even many more interesting places for travelers who tour Morocco to explore in the amazing city of Marrakesh, the romantic city nicknamed as the red city full of amazement and interesting places to visit.
