Bahia PalaceArriving in Marrakesh is like taking a trip back in time. Visitors can easily imagine the caravaneers loading their camels with food, tools and handiwork as they wander through the picturesque alleys of the old town. The souks contain everything that a traveller could want: colour, atmosphere and smells, welcoming and smiling faces. The Semmarine souk specialises in clothing. Find clothes made traditionally in the narrow streets surrounding the souk, while stalls sell jewelry, antiques and other treasures.The famous Jemaa El Fna is a medieval world where, storytellers, shopkeepers and snake charmers vie for attention and mischievous monkeys are known to accost visitors.

See the splendid minaret of the Koutoubia mosque, which is a splendid 12th century Hispano-Moorish masterpiece, inspired the builders of the Giralda in Seville. Amateurs of the eternal Orient will want to visit the splendid Bahia Palace where surprising Andalusian gardens add to the refinement of the prestigious apartments and their secret patios. The Dar Si Said Museum is situated nearby. It’s worth a visit for its great architectural value. Exhibitions of Moroccan art will give the visitor a real insight into the Moroccan way of life.   Remember, for those visiting on a longer break or just stopping over, this southern imperial city offers marvelous heritage in a unique age-old setting.
