Marrakech – Palace and Monuments
Guided Marrakech walking tour
Among the most impressive views of Marrakech, Koutoubia is one of the largest and most beautiful mosques in the Western Muslim world. Its 68m high minaret is a Hispano-Moresque masterpiece that is very similar to the Giralda of Seville, Spain.
The Bahia Palace was built at the end of the 19th century in a garden of one hectare. It is a haphazard arrangement of luxurious secret apartments on the inner courtyards.
During 7 years about 1000 craftsmen of the region Fes worked on the Palace. The only sections open to the public are the Sultan’s Concubine Apartments, the City Council Room, the Walled Walls and the Illuminated Cedar Ceiling, and the Great Central Hall (paved with marble and decorated with zelliges and fountains).
Many things Saadian Tombs with their delicate decorations and beautiful architectural lines to be one of the finest achievements of architecture. They first built for the tombs of Sultan Saadian, Ahmed el Mansour. In 1591 the first “Koubba” (the dome at the top of a mosque) of this cemetery built in the south of the Kasbah.
At the base of the Atlas Mountains is the Menara Gardens. Covering an area of 125 hectares, they are filled with olive trees surrounding a large central lake that dates back to the 12th century and is fed by a network of irrigation canals. At the edge of the water is a small Saadian pavilion. With the snowy peaks at the back, there is a breathtaking view in the evening when the golden rays fall.
