Marrakech is one of the most charming of the old royal cities of Morocco:
With its magnificent palm groves and red clay walls, Marrakech offers a foretaste of the oasis cities of the great African desert that begins behind the Atlas Mountains
Jugglers, acrobats and dancers perform their tricks, snake charmers take a few dirhams from the tourists for a photo, meat skewers sizzle over the fire, while freshly squeezed fruit juices are offered and the last storytellers recite their plays. The old royal city offers many contrasts in a small space. On the one hand the gloomy alleys of the souk, on the other hand stately portals of luxury hotels. You can also enjoy the solemn silence of the sultan’s tombs as well as the exciting spectacle of a Moroccan wedding. Marrakech is the southernmost city of Morocco and certainly the most African of the famous royal cities, while the cities in the north, such as Tangier, Tetouan or even Asilah cannot deny their European influence.
