Resort Summary

Marrakech is one of the largest cities in Morocco and at its heart is the historical old centre, the 1,000-year-old Medina. This area is also called the Red City because of the colour of the ancient walls that protect it.

On holidays in Marrakech, you can meander through alleyways and backstreets to browse the goods in the souk such as beautifully woven carpets, handmade Berber jewellery, leather items and aromatic spices, among other wonderful enticements. While young designers also showcase their work in Souk Cherifia mall. The maze of markets groups sellers of the same type together so if you’re looking for something in particular it shouldn’t be too hard to find.

Other than shopping, the Medina is full of attractions, including an old Jewish quarter. None of the community remains, but you can visit Lazama Synagogue – the most attractive of the temples still standing with its striking white and blue courtyard. Or visit the largest Hammam baths in Marrakech here, and dine in one of the restaurants that can be found in some of the ancient Inns. Whether you’re looking for a last minute break or an All Inclusive Marrakech holiday, we’ve got you covered.
