Marrakech started out as an outpost for desert caravans over 1,000 years ago, a caravanserai. Now a modern city, re-discovered in the Sixties by hippies and the Rolling Stones, Beattles and Led Zeppelin. More recently discovered by the French fashion industry and now a popular tourist destination. Lots to see and do, with the Djemaa el-Fna square and souqs, the shopping areas, as the logical starting point.
Hotel Moroccan House, the best hotel on the trip.
What can I say?
The pool, very nice.
12th century Koutoubia Mosque.
Djemaa el-Fna, Marrakech's main square and activity center.
Modern train station. I took the train to Casablanca.
