The Medina Of Marrakech, The Jewel Of Morocco
In the Berber language the name of the rose and ochre city of Marrakech means ‘Land of God,’ and it is indeed a divine place. Marrakech can be divided into two distinct areas. The Medina is the old city around which the modern city has grown. This is where the true Moroccan culture and architecture can be found and which gives the true flavour of the destination. By taking vacation rentals in the Medina, in an apartment or guest house from 9flats.com you can savour the true heart of this charismatic and mystical place. Visitors can tour the city on a bus as a way of getting to know the area, but nothing beats exploring the Medina on foot. There are traditional North African markets known as souks where it seems everything is available to be purchased, but be prepared to haggle, and if in doubt, simply walk away, it’s not considered impolite, but a good bargaining tactic.
The Koutoubia is the largest of the city’s wonderful mosques. Built during the 12th century reign of the Almohad Caliph Yaqub al-Mansur, it boasts an impressive 77 metre high minaret and has a certain magic when floodlit at night. From the haven of your vacation rentals in Medina from 9flats.com, you can savour all this and more.
Vacation Rentals Medina Plunge You Into The Heart Of Morocco
No exploration from your vacation rentals in the Medina would be complete without a visit to the Djemaa El Fna. This lively and spellbinding square is full of life, noise, scents and color and is known as The Heart Of The City. This market place is an overwhelming but wildly stimulating place of vibrant activity. Here are fortune tellers, tumblers, food sellers, craftsmen, musicians and, yes, snake charmers to make you feel that this is the real Morocco. By night it is perhaps even more captivating. In the Dar Si Said Museum, an opulent palace, you can learn all about the local cultural heritage and artistic traditions of Morocco. Here can be seen marvelous examples of the carpet maker’s craft, as well as displays of fascinating artefacts such as textiles, weaponry, jewelery and wood carvings. Not to be missed is the beautiful El Bahia Palace, built as a pleasure palace for Ahmed Ibn Moussa in the 19th century. This will afford a rare insight into the lifestyle maintained by the royal courts of the period, with its cedar ceilings, stucco walls, sparkling fountains and intricately tiled floors. The spectacularly wealthy Saadian dynasty are legendary for their opulence and this can be seen in their final resting place, the Saadian Tombs, dating from the 16th century, but not reopened until 1917.
