In the bustling squares of Marrakech, traditional markets offer much more than food and spices. In Djemma el-Fna Square, you will find shoemakers, fabric dyers, jewellery makers, as well as musicians and snake charmers, all of them ready to bargain. Wandering through the adjacent souqs, riads, palaces and narrow streets can be tiring, so there is hardly a better way to relax than in a hamam, where massage and steam will chase away your weariness.
Marrakech is an ancient city – a true architectural and cultural marvel – inseparable from the rest of Morocco, a country of expansive deserts, romantic cities, white sand beaches and soaring mountains. After a visit to Marrakech, take time to discover what the rest of the country has to offer.
