For those who travel to Marrakech and want to know the best places to include in their trip in order to fully enjoy their trip and stay in this wonderful city.
It is not the capital of the country, but one of the main tourist destinations. Marrakesh is an almost obligatory destination when traveling to this North African country.
Surrounded by mosques and many cafes, this is the most famous and main square in the city of Marrakesh, where many tourists meet at the beginning and end of each of their events, which makes visiting this place a unique sight.
Its main characteristic is the ability to change during the day, in the morning you can meet snake charmers, water carriers, dancers (largely their culture), and at night small food stalls open that will delight you with a variety of colors, smells and tastes (the magic of Moroccan cuisine ).
Koutoubia or Koutoubia Mosque, located southwest of Jamaa Square, is the largest mosque, and at the same time the tallest building in Marrakech, where Islam is practiced. This mosque is built of red stone and impresses with its minaret with a Moroccan-style spire, semi-circular windows and beautiful gardens.
It is also known as Moulay At-Yazid Mosque, Mosque Palace and Mansuriya Mosque. Unfortunately, like all mosques in Morocco, with the exception of the Tinmel Mosque and the Hassan II Mosque, those who are not Muslims will not be able to enter there. The only way to see part of the interior is through the large doors. Like when the adults were small and curious to look out the windows of the neighbor’s house.
Despite this limitation, it is really worth visiting the mosque and trying to see the washing process that Muslims carry out before entering prayer, as well as its gardens. In addition, the exterior of the mosque is really beautiful for photography lovers, and the entrance to the Saadi Tombs is just behind the southern part of the mosque.
This is one of the most attractive places for tourists and its beauty is truly amazing. The Saadi Tombs were built at the end of the 16th century and only discovered in the 20th century, so they are very well preserved and one of the places to visit in Marrakech.
Here you can admire the architectural beauty and the great history of the Saadi dynasty. In the Saadi Necropolis (royal necropolis), Lalla Messaouda, mother of Al-Mansur, is buried.
