Best places to see in Morocco

Agdal Gardens
Parks
Groovy groves. Agdal Gardens is a vast horde of fruit trees boxed into square plots, irrigated by melt-water that flows straight from the Atlas Mountains. Oranges and pomegranates, lemons, figs and apricots – Agdal’s one fruity garden. In the middle of it all sits Dar El-Hana, a colonnaded pavilion beside a once-pristine pool that exudes a tumble-down charm.

Menara Gardens
Parks
In this most photogenic of cities, Menara Gardens are supremely postcard-worthy. The snowy crags of the Atlas Mountains loom in the background, sweeping across the hazy horizon. Nestled among olive groves, a placid expanse of lake reflects the simple pavilion. It’s a centuries-old panorama that’s loved by locals – Menara’s the go-to strolling spot for families and lovebirds alike.

Medersa Ben Youssef
Monuments
Now this is one cool school. Medersa Ben Youssef is an architectural diamond hidden in the rough of mazy Medina. It’s an Islamic college where pious clever clogs once came to study the Koran. These lucky scholars were able to look up from their manuscripts and see a physical glorification of God, with spellbinding patterns wrought in tiny mosaic tiles and carved cedar wood.

Koutoubia
Landmarks
Kowtow in Koutoubia! This mosque’s handsome minaret has dominated the Marrakech skyline for over nine hundred years. From this soaring vantage point, the “adhan” (call to prayer) echoes across Djemaa El Fna Square and calls believers in to kneel and reflect. Due to entrance rules, non-Muslims will have to be content with gawping at Marrakech’s iconic spire from the outside.

Djemaa El Fna
Landmarks
The eye of the Marrakech storm. From dawn to dusk and beyond, this historic square is a swirling whirlpool of humanity. Snake charmers and fortune tellers, wise men, mad men, magicians, musicians and mystics – all members of the fast-flowing dramatis personae of Djemaa el Fna. Take a deep breath, dive in and see which characters you encounter. One thing it won’t be is boring.
Accommodations near Djemaa El Fna
El Badi Palace
Monuments
From sultans to storks. When this palace was built in the 16th century, it was the envy of rulers worldwide. Bursting with carved marble and gold leaf, it lived up to its name of “The Incomparable”. But the ravages of time have left a shell, albeit an eerily magnificent one. The thick, scarlet walls are riddled with crumbling pockmarks, with storks the only modern-day watchmen.
