The Best Area to Stay in Marrakesh by itinerarioWeb 

Marrakesh is one of the most important cities of the Kingdom of Morocco, but we are pretty sure that it’s the most beautiful! Like every other important Muslim city, Marrakesh has a great Medina and also a big beautiful main square that is known by the name of Jemaa el-Fnaa. In there we can find a permanent souk where the offer of products varies depending on the time of the day. From orange juice stalls and water sellers to food-stalls, magicians and storytellers as the day goes by.

About 200 meters from the main square, we can see the Koutoubia Mosque, which is the largest mosque in Marrakesh. It is located on the Avenue Mohammed V, in front of the Place de Foucauld and surrounded by nice gardens. Its minaret has 77 meters in height and the evening prayer call is heard from all narrow alleys of the Medina. Without leaving the city center, we can visit another colorful and crowded souk: the Semmarine souk. Apart from food and spices, you can also buy jewelry, perfumes, leather crafts and incredible souvenirs…

One of the best places to stay in Marrakesh is inside the Medina, the truly old city. There are different types of accommodation, but the one that will exceed your expectations is the traditional Moroccan riad.

Some other must-see tourist attractions are the old religious Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa, Badi Palace, or the Saadian Tombs, all of them, located in the center of Marrakesh.
