Touristic Highlights of Marrakesh in Morocco


 
Travel & Tourism
Marrakesh is considered the third largest city in Morocco in terms of population with more than one million inhabitants. The city was established in the 11th century by Yusuf ibnTashfin. Marrakesh today became one of the most favorite touristic cities that welcome numerous travelers who spend their vacations in Morocco.

Marrakesh became a wonderful cultural center where the Islamic and Andalusian civilizations melt together. This resulted in distinctive architectural elements and layouts, a large number of famous philosophers and authors, and a magnificent city that welcomes thousands of tourists every year who travel to Morocco.

The land of god, or Marrakesh, as its name refers to in the Amazeeg language, was the capital of Almoravids Dynasty. This is why the city enjoys hosting a large number of Islamic monuments and fortifications. When the French took control of Morocco in the beginning of the 20th century, Marrakesh received considerable attention from the French authorities. There are many French establishments that survived until today in Marrakesh and amaze tourists who come from all over the world to enjoy their trips in Morocco.

Today we would be highlighting some of the most remarkable touristic highlights of Marrakesh commonly visited by travelers who spend their holidays in Morocco.

Medina Souk

Medina Souk is the main market of Marrakesh. Located in the old district which is full of monuments and historical sites, the Medina Souk is characterized by its wonderful blend of narrow lanes, colors, and the marvelous smells of perfumes and various herbs. It is quite recommended for tourists who visit Morocco to explore the Medina Souk.

Many tourists who travel to Morocco pay this market a visit to buy some traditional Moroccan gifts and souvenirs including the traditional Moroccan shoes, perfumes, leather products, herbs, and many other wonderful products.

Almoravids Dome

Almoravids Dome is in fact the most ancient surviving monument in Marrakesh. This marvelous dome was constructed in the 12th century during the reign of Ali ibn Yusuf. The Almoravids Dome is commonly included in several travel packages in Morocco.

Although the layout and the design from outside are rather simple, the dome is quite interesting from inside. The inner part of the dome is featured with its distinctive stone decoration, one of the magnificent features of the Almoravids dynasty architecture. Some tourists who visit Morocco are interested to know more about the civilization of Almoravids dynasty.

The dome is a rare example of the architecture of Almoravids that was largely damaged by Almohads Dynasty that took control of this region of the country afterwards. This is the main reason why many tourists who travel to Morocco are interested to visit it.

Majorelle Garden

A magnificent place to explore in Marrakesh is the Majorelle Garden. This is where you find the fertile soil with many trees and plants including palms and cactus. This garden goes back to the middle of the 20th century when the famous French painter, Jack Majorelle visited Morocco for health reasons.

Majorelle started drawing many several paintings to reflect the life in Marrakesh. This is why travelers who tour Morocco visit the garden to enjoy the natural scenery blended with the French taste of art and how they viewed the life and the architecture of Morocco.
