Marrakech...

Marrakech, founded in the 11 th century, Marrakech has always struck the imagination of western travellers. An imperial city, caravanserais, market places where southern tribes men and Berber villagers sell handicrat and food products. Located in the fertile haouz plain at the foot of the magnificent Atlas mountains, it is a city of incredible beauty, casting the ochre of its walls and monuments to the dazzling sun.

 

Handicraft and markets.

Irregulary shaped, Djemaa el Fna square lies at the heart of the old town, with the Koutoubia mosque, one of the most famous monuments in Marrakech dominating it. It is rather difficult to describe the scene accurately, as tourists, touts, storytellers, soothsayers, snake charmers, strollers and sandwich sellers can be seen everywhere.
