To explore the Red City is to travel back in time, navigating centuries of history imbued with a myriad of influences. For a thousand years, each dynasty of Moroccan sovereigns has left its mark on the medina, evident in the plethora of ancient monuments in the city's heart. Beyond the medieval walls extends a contrastingly modern metropolis called the Ville Nouvelle, revealing wide avenues, contemporary buildings, and futuristic shopping malls.
The souks, riads, and market stalls create spaces of gathering and exchange, where the enticing smell of Moroccan dishes beckons visitors to delight in authentic cuisine and the art of sharing. With a wide array of street food stalls and a diverse offering of international restaurants, Marrakesh stands out as a gastronomic hub.
From the Jemaa El-Fna Square and the Koutoubia Mosque to the dazzling new town, the Ochre City captivates with its vital energy and diverse architecture. Undergoing a quiet artistic revolution, Marrakesh teems with intersecting narratives and boundless imagination, weaving a vibrant tapestry of cultures, languages, and nationalities.
The new Marrakesh City Guide is now available online or in bookstores worldwide, with a version available on the City Guides App (iOS)
