PLAZA MARRAKECH

Marrakech is one of the imperial cities of Morocco, known as the “red city”. A magical city, full of markets, palaces, gardens and mosques, through which you can walk and immerse yourself in exploring patios and alleys full of history in the Medina.

For this trip we have prepared an accommodation of the most typical Moroccan, a Riad within the Medina. Riad literally means Eden or Garden. The one typical constructions of Morocco that is characterized by its central patio, in which there are usually fountains and plants. They are very welcoming because they are usually small and all the rooms are located around this patio.

I imagine that you will already be rehearsing the art of bargaining, if not, go for it! The sellers of the souk are specialists in this art and if you do not want to pay more than the articles are worth, you should be patient and enjoy bargaining. The souk stands out for having its sale areas distributed, you will find an area of ​​leather goods, a variety of fabric stores where are the typical carpets and as no metal objects such as lamps, trays or mirrors. You can also get lost among souvenir shops, jewelry, minerals, antiques and food products.

The oriental dance, or Raks Sharki in Arabic, is one of the oldest dances in the world and has influences from other dances from the Middle East and North Africa, so be encouraged to join this trip and come and dance belly dance to Marrakech !

In large cities like Marrakech, attention must be paid to theft caused by carelessness or jerking. So, as in any other place, it is recommended to store the belongings in a safe place and not leave them unattended.

It is convenient to avoid military zones (not programmed in our itinerary), but in case of encountering any, it is important to emphasize that it is forbidden to take photographs.

It is advisable to dress discreetly and without drawing much attention. We also advise that you always carry a scarf or pashmina, because sometimes, especially women, we have to cover our heads to enter a sacred place.
