Morocco – Marrakech

Marrakech, known as the “Red City”, is an important and former imperial city in Morocco.
Like many North African cities, the city of Marrakech comprises both an old fortified city (the m├ędina) and an adjacent modern city (called Gueliz).
Marrakech has the largest traditional market (souk) in Morocco and also has one of the busiest squares in Africa and the world, Djemaa el Fna. The square bustles with acrobats, story-tellers, water sellers, dancers and musicians. By night food stalls open in the square turning it into a huge busy open-air restaurant.
