It's a beautiful place to take a stroll in. I took so much pictures there. It's a very nice place to sit down and take in the fresh air of that place.

You cannot miss this. This is in the middle of old town and near to the large square from where you can see this beautiful old large mosque. You will feel the history immediately when you are close to it.

The Koutoubia is a beautiful landmark in the city center. There's a lot of walking nearby and the Juma prayers are on Friday afternoon for all worshippers.

This is the tallest building in Marrakesh, and here is a landmark that you can see it from almost everywhere. We walk around, take pictures is beautiful, but non-Muslims cannot enter, still worth to go, is also local shopping around, and a beautiful place.

Beautiful architecture. Well worth visiting if you are in Marrakech. The inside is beautiful with amazing spaces. The location is based right near the souks and the square.

A good landmark visit. Elegant outside, plain inside. The best thing is the buzz around this place, great place to meet and chat and good location for other nearby sightseeing.
