tours in morocco

Marrakech, known as well as the “Red City”, is one of the imperial cities and one of the strongest spots that many tourists visit every year. There are many historical monuments to visit in this city starting with the  Koutoubia, which  is one of the most impressive and beautiful mosques of the western Muslim world. Its minaret of 78 m height is a work of Hispanic-Moorish art, very similar to that of the Giralda de Sevilla. Another interesting place in Marrakech is The Bahia Palace, a wonderful palace that was built in the late nineteenth century in a two-acre garden, and shows a random arrangement of luxury secret apartments with interior patios. Its construction took about seven years by thousand of artisants from the Fez region. The only section open to the public are the apartments of the Sultan’s favorite concubine, the council chamber (with tiled walls and cedar ceilings lit) and the large central patio (paved with marble and decorated with tiles and fountains).

The Saadi tombs are considered by many to be a beautiful feat of architecture. They were first built to house the tombs of Sultan Saadi Ahmed el Mansour. In 1591 the first “koubba” (the dome on top of a mosque) of this cementery was built south of the Kasbah.

In the middle of the AtlasMountains are the Menara Gardens, which reach an area of 250 acres and are full of olive trees. The gardens surround a large central lake that dates back to the 12th century and is fed by a network of irrigation canals. At the water’s edge there is a small pavilion of Saadia. With the snow covered peaks in the background, this is an impressive sight when night falls and the golden rays of the sunset impact against the mountains. The panoramic views are fantastic.
