Sightseeing and things to do in Marrakech

Rich with a proud legacy of the past, one of the key spots for sightseeing in Marrakech is the old fortified city, or Medina, which takes visitors back in time with its ancient construction and fascinating history.

One of the best things to do in Marrakech is to head to the Djemma el Fna. The main square combines the old and the new in a brilliantly colourful clash of cultures, which by day is home to myriad street-pedlars and entertainers (snake charmers and jugglers are de rigueur), before night falls and a wonderful array of freshly-cooked local food becomes available from the stalls that burst into life around sunset.

Introduction to Marrakech

Visitors looking to dive head-first in the unique and fascinating culture of North Africa should find everything they are looking for on Marrakech tours.

The city has a reputation as part of the iconic 'hippy trail' made famous in the middle of the 20th century and is now popular among a new breed of backpackers and travellers, who are more socially-aware and keen to sample foreign cultures and different ways of life.

This loud, busy and bustling city is home to the biggest market – or souk – in the country and attracts millions of visitors every year.

As an Islamic country the city boasts many impressive mosques, representing a diverse range of architectural styles and periods in history, which is also true of the array of city walls and gates which marked the boundary of the old heart of Marrakech.

Djemaa el Fna

Be entertained by snake charmers and dancing apes in Marrakeck's lively central square.

Saadian Tomb

The Saadian Tombs date back to the time of the Saadi Dynasty. Intricately decorated in an Arabic style they are the final resting place for many of the Dynasties most influential members.

Things to do for FREE! Experiences in Marrakech
  • Djemaa El Fna

    Djemaa El Fna Ok, so to be realistic it is likely that the persuasive food vendors and street entertainers will get you to part with some Dirhams. But if you have a firm “no”, the sights, sounds and smells of Marrakech’s major tourist hub can be enjoyed for free. Here you can be entertained by a mysterious array of the weird and wonderful including snake charmers and dancing apes.

  • Koutoubia Mosque Gardens

    Koutoubia Mosque Gardens In most pictures you will have seen of Marrakech the distinctive red stone Minaret of the Koutoubia Mosque will be overlooking the city. Built in the 12th Century the minaret towers over Marrakech, keeping an eye on the hustle and bustle of the city below. Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the Mosque or Minaret but if you are looking to escape the frenzy of the city the beautifully maintained gardens of the Koutoubia Mosque will provide a peaceful Oasis.

  • Menara Gardens

    Menara Gardens The Menara Gardens are a photographers haven. The centrepiece; a small sandstone house, pictured overlooking the reservoir is one of the most iconic images of Marrakech. Set slightly outside the city centre the gardens, comprising broad avenues and mighty Palm Trees also offer wonderful views (and photos) of the Marrakech city walls and the Atlas Mountains.

  • Wandering the Souks

    Wandering the Souks Spreading north through a labyrinth of narrow and often covered streets the souks of Marrakech are the place to go if you wish to purchase spices, jewels and carpets. This barely scratches the surface however of the bizarre array of wares on offer. Even if you are not looking to buy anything this weird and wonderful array of vendors must be seen to be believed and simply taking a stroll and “window shopping” is a great way to experience the true Marrakech.
