Marrakech’s stunning Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to Jemaa el-Fnaa, one of the most vibrant squares and market centres on the continent. Here you will find an abundance of local culture, particularly in the early evening where many food stalls arrive. With so much festivity in Jemaa el-Fnaa, it is difficult to believe the square was once used for public executions and decapitations by the city rulers.
One of the most beautiful things to do in Morocco is to visit one of the magnificent gardens, Of particular note is the Majorelle Garden which houses a stunning variety of plant species, a notable collection of cacti, many bird species, lovely ponds with lilies, many fountains and even a Museum of Islamic Art. Interestingly, the designer Yves Saint Laurent bought and restored the garden in 1980 and, following his death, his ashes were scattered here. It’s an enchanting place that radiates in the famous Yves Klein blue.
