Marrakech, being the 5th most visited city in the world, has lots of touristic attractions to visit and its temperature is ideal the whole year, with an average of 22 ºC and 330 sunny days per year.

Among the most famous attractions of Marrakech you can find:

Jemaa el Fna

It is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter (old city). During the day it is predominantly occupied by orange juice stalls, youths with chained Barbary apes, water sellers in colourful costumes with traditional leather water-bags and brass cups, and snake charmers who will pose for photographs for tourists.

Koutoubia mosque

v Located in the southwest medina quarter, it is the largest mosque in Marrakech. It is ornamented with curved windows, a band of ceramic inlay, pointed merlons, and decorative arches. It also has a large plaza with gardens.

Menara gardens

Located in the west of Marrakech, at the gates of the Atlas Mountains, these gardens were built in the 12th century. The name menara derives from the pavilion with its small green pyramid roof (menzeh). It was built during the 16th century Saadi dynasty and renovated in 1869 by sultan Abderrahmane of Morocco, who used to stay here in summertime.
