Market square in Marrakech, Morocco

Marrakech Trips

One of the ancient capitals of Morocco, Marrakech has a long and fabled history. Surrounded by huge red mud walls and just 65km from the towering Atlas Mountains, modern Marrakech has lost none of that charm, with its soul firmly rooted in the Djemaa el-Fna – the huge square at the heart of life here.

Myriad souks lead away from the Djemaa el-Fna (thought to mean 'assembly of the dead'), and they can keep a wanderer happy for hours. But it is the square itself, with its acrobats, storytellers, snake charmers, boxing matches and food stalls, that provides the main draw for the population of this great city, as well as a great place for people-watching.
