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 mazelike 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.
Marrakesh "Marrakech" is rich in culture and so diverse with its historical influences reflected through the beautiful architecture, delicious cuisine, and welcoming people. The culture in the 'red city' is unique and has been strongly influenced by Arab and Islamic civilizations and the vast Berber population.
