Marrakesh is more than a city

Marrakesh is more than just a city. It is a pearl polished by history and its tradition of hospitality which, for centuries, has known how to welcome visitors.

The Majorelle Gardens house a collection of plants from the four corners of the earth flourishing among elegant ornamental lakes and an Art Deco villa. Yves Saint Laurent’s ashes were scattered here. You leave this enchanted spot in one of the many horse drawn carriages available in the city and take the inevitable trip to the palm grove. From there, you continue to the Ménara, one of Marrakesh’s symbolic places. This elegant building, which you can recognize by its green tiles, is surrounded by an immense ornamental lake. Marrakshi families come here to enjoy this cool spot during heat waves.

When you arrive back in the “red” city, you can enjoy an ice cream, a pastry or a cool drink in one of the establishments in Guéliz, the modern part of Marrakesh. Luxury shops, banks, tearooms and cafés; the “red” city knows how to reconcile its prestigious past with contemporary dynamism. Marrakesh is a city full of life and enthusiasm as its omnipresent dynamism shows. The traveller will be charmed by his finds, encounters, strolls and picturesque souvenirs. His only regret is his melancholy as his departure approaches. However, he can then dream of coming back to enjoy the mild moonlit nights on a terrace again…

To remember

Those who satisfy their desire to discover and to meet people are sure to enjoy simple joys in Marrakesh.
