MOROCCO, MARRAKESH

Marrakesh is nothing like I have ever seen before. We had a lovely weekend there and these are a few of my pictures from our stay there. I hope to return to Morocco and explore some more in the future.

Koutoubia Tower with its 70 meter high minaret – this is the largest mosque in Marrakech. We were told that this is thought of as an evil tower and regarded as a national symbol of Marrakech like the Effiel Tower in Paris.

One of the many cats that we saw around Marrakech, this one was always near our riad. Just made me miss my boys. They were all scary thin !

This was an entrance to a private home amongst the wallways and passages to our riad. I really liked this and would one day like to try and repeat it on my own home.

The Jemaa el-Fnna square – an UNESCO world heritage site since 1985. Very busy day and night.

The national flag of Morocco. Marrakesh, a former imperial city in western Morocco, is a major economic center and home to mosques, palaces and gardens. The medina is a densely packed, walled medieval city dating to the Berber Empire, with maze like alleys where thriving souks (marketplaces) sell traditional textiles, pottery and jewelry. A symbol of the city, and visible for miles, is the Moorish minaret of 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque.
