Marrakech is known as the `Red city`, built in 1062. The name Marrakech in African means Holy Land, also known as God’s Land.

Located near the foot of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is one of the four largest cities in Morocco, after Casablanca, Fes and Rabat.

Every corner of Marrakech’s old town reminds visitors of the scene in Sheherazade’s stories of a thousand and one nights.

The city is divided into two separate areas: Gúeliz and La Medina, connected by Avenue Mohammed V. In particular, Gúeliz is a new neighborhood, built by the French, so it has modern architecture.

Besides La Medina, the most attractive and prominent destination in Marrakech is Jemaa El Fna, one of the most famous and busiest squares in Africa and the world.

The square is most crowded in the evening.

In addition, visitors should not miss La Bahia Palace – the palace named after the woman who was most favored by the prime minister during the Moulay Hassan dynasty.

Many foreign visitors, after once setting foot in the city, were captivated by the ancient and mysterious beauty of Marrakech and decided to spend the rest of their lives living here.
