Marrakech is the principal capital of the south. The cityís
dazzling centre, the Djemaa el Fna square, is an enthralling and
exotic Eastern experience populated by snake-charmers, acrobats and
storytellers. Marrakech has a medieval medina and markets. Behind
small gates you will discover sultanís tombs,
ancient palaces and Koran schools.
Interesting is the Koutoubia mosque. This 12th century
Hispano-Moorish masterpiece inspired the builders of the Giralda in
Seville. Also beautiful is the splendid Bahia Palace with its
surprising Andalusian garden.
Si Said Museum is situated nearby. It has great architecture. It
also exposes Moroccan art.
