Wrapped up in history, mystery, and charm, Morocco’s city of Marrakech is a major economic centre and is home to mosques, palaces and gardens. The Medina is a solidly crammed, enclosed medieval metropolitan dating back to the Berber Empire with puzzling backstreets where flourishing souks sell traditional textiles, pottery and jewellery. It’s not Morocco’s capital city, that’s Rabat. It’s not the country’s largest city, that’s Casablanca. It’s not even the African nation’s oldest city, that’s Fes. But Marrakech takes victory over other Moroccan metropolises as the informal cultural hub.
So, you want to go to this fantastic city? Here are 10 fascinating truths to help get you underway on your visit to Marrakech.

Morocco will blow your mind and truly is a slice of magical paradise.
