Start your journey at Medersa Ben Youssef, where beautifully intricate tilework and arches take visitors back to Morocco's glorious past. Keep your eye out for Koubba Almoravides, an unassuming structure with an entrance hidden away in the narrow alleys near Jemaâ El Fna square – one of the oldest surviving pieces of Moroccan architecture.
Next is the renowned Koutoubia Mosque, one of Maghreb's best-known landmarks featuring stunning Hispano-Moorish art from centuries ago.
Take some time to appreciate the fascinating minaret of this sacred building before heading to the oldest side of town for a visit to Badii Palace – all that remains today are its evocative ruins which have been carefully preserved as a testament to days gone by.
Then continue along your journey and explore Bahia Palace – regarded as one of Morocco's largest palaces ever built. The palace was first begun by Alaouite sultan Muhammad ibn Abd al-Rahman, in 1859 and then expanded by his son Sultan Moulay Abdelaziz between 1894 and 1900. It was since restored but still shows hints of its remarkable past among the intricately detailed carvings.
This popular attraction makes for an unforgettable day for visitors eager to dig their teeth into Marrakech's inner history!
Continue through this beautiful city's enchanting lanes, where live music seamlessly blends into intoxicating herbalist aromas from nearby spices shops & traditional Moroccan medicine outlets.
It won't be long until you reach your next stop on this magickal journey – Saadian Tombs! A short walk away lies these royal mausoleums built and expanded between 1557–1603, containing 11 patios bedecked with tiled walls, designed akin to two gorgeous cedar wooden domes and exquisitely decorated marble columns. Head inside while learning about those buried here long ago - Sultan Ahmed el Mansour's 3 sons amongst them!
