Are you planning to come and spend a weekend of two or three days in Marrakech with friends and would like to have a small selection of essential places to discover so as not to miss anything during your express stay? travel to Morocco offers a small selection of the highlights of the ocher city not to be missed under any circumstances!
1. Place Jemâa-el-Fna:
Place Jemâa-el-Fna is the place to see in Marrakech. It is the most important place in the city. It is located in the heart of the medina and has always been its beating heart.
2. The Mellah:
The Mellah is described as the Jewish quarter of Marrakech. It shelters the synagogue of Marrakech but it is especially the ideal place to discover if you want to bring many spices in your suitcases to sublimate your dishes or natural cosmetics.
3. The Majorelle Garden:
We leave the ramparts of the medina to head towards the Majorelle district. You will be able to discover the magnificent Majorelle Garden created by the painter Jacques Majorelle, himself, then retaliation by the deceased couturier Yves Saint Laurent. The garden was an oasis of calm and an inexhaustible source of inspiration for him.
4. The tanners' district:
The tanning district is located near Bab Khmiss, just a few kilometers from the city center. The traditional tanneries are still in operation. The smell is not very pleasant. We will gladly offer you a bouquet of mint to place under your nose so that you can make the visit in peace.
5. The Palmeraie:
The Palmeraie will be the end point of your weekend in Marrakech. You can admire more than 100,000 trees on nearly 13,000 hectares. The Palmeraie has become in a few years a chic district sheltering large opulent villas with high palisades. The major part of these residences respected to rich owners, national and international but also to big stars
