Welcome to Marrakech

Marrakech, capital of central Morocco, is the first of four Moroccan imperial cities. It is located in the center of the fertile and irrigated plain of Haouz, south of the Tennsift River.

Surrounded by a vast palm grove, the medina of Marrakech is called the "red city" because of its buildings and its earthen ramparts, built during the reign of the Almohad dynasty. The heart of the medina is the Jamaa El Fna square, a lively marketplace. Nearby is the 12th century Kutubiyyah mosque with its minaret (77 meters).

The old part of the city, known as the Medina, was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Marrakech is famous for its parks, especially the Menara olive grove and the gardens of Agdal. Popular for tourism and winter sports, its surroundings are of rare beauty and diversity.

The airport of Marrakech, in the international standards, is very close to the city center and it is accessible by bus.
