The Marrakech/Essaouira region
This area has remained virtually unchanged since the Middle Ages, Marrakesh's solid ramparts encircle and protect its mysterious labyrinthine medina. This hides the sultans' palaces, the ornate mansions of rich merchants, and some of the most colourful bazaars in the Arab world. In the late afternoon, Moroccans as well as foreigners, crowd the Djemâa el Fna to hear storytellers and musicians perform, be wooed by herbalists and acrobats, and watch smoke rise from the outdoor food stalls as vendors whip up a wild array of fried fish, meats, salads, and such Moroccan delicacies as lamb or beef stewed in an earthenware pot and left in hot ashes all day.
Marrakech is full of culture and history.
Amongst the many places to see are
- The Bahia Palace a 19th Century Politicians Mansion with its stunning architecture,
-The Koutoubia Mosque tower,
- The beaitiful Marjorelle Gardens with its lily ponds, cacti, stunning pavillion and art museum,
- The Marrakech Museum of Moroccan Art and Sculpture'
- The Menara gardens
A day in the Medina and you will really appreciate the peace and quiet of the Villa.
There are 3 golf courses in Marrakech with many more planned. Another good excursion is a day out to the Ourika Valley.
