Must-see Attractions in Marrakesh

by Preston Travel Centre - Marrakesh, Morocco -

Known as the "Ochre City," Marrakesh is the most important former imperial city in Morocco's history. Similar to many other Moroccan cities, Marrakesh comprises both an old fortified city and modern neighborhoods. It is home to the largest traditional market in the country and also has one of the busiest squares in Africa and the world - Djemaa el Fna. The space is alive with acrobats, story-tellers, water sellers, dancers and musicians. At night food stalls open creating a huge busy open air restaurants. 

I really liked this most by Randy over at the BeersandBeans.com blog - "4 Essential Attractions in Marrakech." His trip sounded incredible and I like this list. Here's an excerpt:

Koutoubia Mosque

"Like a landlocked lighthouse, the Koutoubia Mosque stands tall over the one and two story red-washed buildings of the Medina. Its light glows in the form of five daily prayers that are projected live through the Minaret’s speakers.

The mosque and minaret are closed to non-muslims but the gardens are open to the public. But even so, standing outside in the courtyard as the call to prayer expands out over the Medina is a free and simple joy."
