Welcome to Marrakesh


Marrakesh, known as the "Red City", is an important and former imperial city in Morocco. It has a population of 928 850 inhabitants in 2014, it remains the tourist capital of the country. Like many North African and Middle Eastern cities, Marrakech comprises both an old fortified city (the medina) and an adjacent modern city (called Gueliz). It is served by Menara International Airport (RAK is the code for the airport) and a rail link to Casablanca and the north. Marrakech is the third largest city in Morocco after Casablanca and Rabat. 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. This square is the operating point for entertainers such as acrobats, drummers, dancers, pipe musicians, comedians and storytellers. By night, the square turns into food stalls, becoming a huge open-air restaurant with busy life. There's plenty of choice for meals, including the Djemaa el Fna food stalls, many inexpensive cafe-restaurants and a number of up-market palace-restaurants that offer Morocco's traditional cuisine at its very best. The souks offer everything the traveler expects: colors, atmospheres, fragrances, smiling and welcoming faces.


Marrakech eating and drinking options break down less rigidly than usual between the Ville Nouvelle, in this case the Medina. The Medina is where you'll find most of the city's French-style cafes, bistros and restaurants and virtually all the bars. There's plenty of choice for meals, including the spectacle of the Djemaa el Fna food stalls, many inexpensive cafe-restaurants and a number of up-market palace-restaurants that offer Morocco's traditional cuisine at its very best.
