The Best Things To Do In Marrakech


1. Medersa Ben Youssef

An architectural marvel and Marrakech’s most important monument, this 14th-century religious school has recently undergone a painstaking five-year renovation during which the rich zellij tiling, ancient cedarwood ceilings and vine-covered stuccowork have been brought back to stunning life.

2. Souk Semmarine

Souk Semmarine is the Bond St of Marrakech’s central souks, lined with carpets, cut brass lanterns, leatherwork and babouche. Dive in and get lost in the tangle of alleys which lead off into Rahba Kedima (the spice market) and souk Haddadine (blacksmiths alley).

5. Bahia Palace

Bahia Palace (which roughly translates to ‘beautiful palace’) was built in the late 19th century, and now forms the epicentre of the city’s culture. You won’t believe the decor until you see it, with high, gilded ceilings, rooms filled with paintings, mosaics and stuccos, and a huge, open garden to wander.

9. Jemaa el-Fna

The vast open square at the heart of the medina is one of Marrakech’s biggest attractions and is a Unesco world heritage site. Expect snake charmers, street entertainers and over-enthusiastic henna artists at every turn. Locals and tourists descend on the Jemaa every night, drawn by the ceaseless hoopla and halqa (street theatre).

14. El Badi Palace

The epic ruins of Sultan Ahmed al-Mansour's once-magnificent palace, within which are set sunken gardens of orange trees surrounded by epic ramparts whose decrepit towers offer panoramic views over the medina.

El Badi Palace may be a ruin, but it offers a fascinating insight into the power and wealth of past Moroccan dynasties. Within the ruins, you’ll also find the jewel that is the Koutoubia’s minbar (prayer pulpit), crafted by 12th-century Cordoban artisans.
