MARRAKECH

Lying at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, nested in the midst of a palm-grove is the red pearl, Marrakech!

More than an Imperial city, Marrakech legitimately boasts the sumptuous relics of its glorious past: palaces, tombs, gardens and minarets compete with each other for the pleasure of the visitor. A most lively city, a city of thousand and one perfumes, colours and melodies where life is a continuous show, climaxing at the natural theatre of Djemaa El Fna Square where magicians, acrobats, storytellers, and fortune-tellers gather to entertain you. Extending north from the square is the medina within which lies the imperial heritage of Marrakech. Wandering the souks in the Medina is like travelling back in time, some shops glittering with jewellery, some festooned with richly coloured carpets and all around you the sounds of bargaining for that all important “ best price”!

A dry and healthy climate adds to the pleasures of visits and excursions, making it possible to practice all kinds of open-air sports.
