In a few words

The city is situated west of the foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Marrakesh is 580 km (360 mi) southwest of Tangier, 327 km (203 mi) southwest of the Moroccan capital of Rabat, 239 km (149 mi) south of Casablanca, and 246 km (153 mi) northeast of Agadir , The scene of Marrakech is colourful, with animated  characters at the lively Jemaa El Fna Square; hawkers  of all kinds in the local souks; beautiful f loral  gardens; 11 th and 14 th century architecture; old  palaces hand built with colourful mosaic tiles and  hand carved cedarwood ceilings; and camels and   horses performing around Bedouin tent encampments.

Moroccan cuisine is a healthy Mediterranean cuisine,  which uses fresh ingredients and is not too spicy.  Dining opportunities are unique, either in 14 th  century palaces or under Moroccan Bedouin tents.

Marrakech is outside of the euro zone, which allows  good value for money.

From Europe, Marrakech is a short haul destination  with an exotic appeal. Marrakech offers an intriguing  blend of Arab, Berber and African culture with an  interesting chic French twist thrown in.

We have good weather year round and good natural  lighting which is appreciated by photographers and  film studios.

We have diverse terrain, ranging from the High Atlas  Mountains to palm oases to deserts to the shores of  the Atlantic Ocean.

Marrakech is colourful, with local inhabitants wearing  colourful dress and traditional buildings painted in  ochre set  against a back drop of green palm  vegetation and purple snow capped mountains.
