Marrakech is considered one of Morocco’s most important cultural centres and is one of the country’s most visited destinations. Its wealth of history, culture and architecture has been preserved over the years, complemented by a vibrant atmosphere distinguished by its markets and festivals.
Situated at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, the ”Red City” is divided into 4 areas: the Medina, the Kasbah, the Mellah, and Gueliz. Each area offers markets, gardens, palaces and mosques that make exploring this city an unforgettable experience to enjoy while staying at our Barceló Hotel Group hotel.
A city of contrasts, maze-like souks and bustling streets. Marrakech has the power to mesmerise all who visit, enshrouding them in mystery and beauty. Are you ready to discover this city? Leave the daily grind behind and immerse yourself in this incredible city.
The Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa el-Fnaa square are Marrakech's icons. The Koutoubia is considered Marrakech’s most important mosque and can be seen from almost any part of the city. Walking away from it, you will reach the vibrant and famous Jemaa el-Fnaa, in the heart of the city. There is no better place to take in the essence of public and local life both during the day and in the evening.
The Marrakech souk is also a must-see attraction. Fabric-dyers, basket weavers and tradesmen have many different products to offer the best bargain-hunters. In addition, don't forget to visit the Menara Gardens, the Saadian Tombs, the historic Ben Youssef Madrasa or the Majorelle Garden.
