I only had a short break in Marrakech but some of its sights, and those on a trip out, were worth grouping

  1. Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    The Badii Palace in Marrakech is said to have been one of the world's finest, taking all of 25 years to build. Apparently it only lasted in its original state for one century and then it took ten years for removal to a new capital. Now there are t…
  2. Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    I have read wildly conflicting reviews about this palace and wildly different comparisons between it and the far older Badii Palace. However I can only review it as it struck me and it struck me hard as mightily impressive design. I did not realis…
  3. Cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    With the palaces of Marrakech, one is old but ruined, the other fairly new but very ornate.However the Madrasa (however you choose to spell it!) is both old (14th century) and very beautifully ornamented. It is on the far side of the 'tourist souks' …
  4. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    For a start, it's enormous! It's largely free of traffic, except for deliveries. During different hours of the day it is transformed. In the morning it is very sparsely populated. There are a few normal market-type stalls and a few with tooth-pull…
  5. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    A review of the Koutabia Mosque in Marrakech should be written by a Muslim since the rest of us are not allowed inside - and I very much hope that this review may provoke others who have been inside to write their own. I only know about all the aisle…
  6. Very cheap "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    The Saadian tombs date from the seventeenth century and were lost for most of the time up to 1917. I have given 5 overall and I think the artistry merits the grading but this will not occupy as much time as the palaces or the Madrasa - it is only a s…
  7. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Ourika Valley, Morocco
    I know I am not the only one on this site who needs a day in the country during a predominantly urban break. In Marrakech I regarded the Ourika Valley trip as the greatest change and the most informative. I went on a trip run by 'Sahara Expeditions.'…
  8. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Marrakech, Morocco
    The title is serious! It's amazingly easy to get lost if you just go for a stroll around the markets and old streets, which is what I recommend. It's not true that there is nothing in Marrakech except stalls with goods for sale. On the other hand you…
