Marakech is most visited and most attractive city in Morocco.

  


 Marrakech is possibly the most important of all Morocco's four former imperial cities. The red walls of the Marrakech city, built by Ali ibn Yusuf in 1122–1123, have given the city the nickname of "The Red City" . Marrakesh established itself as a cultural, religious, and trading centre, and its Jemaa el-Fnaa is the busiest square in Africa.


Like many Moroccan cities, Marrakech comprises an old fortified city  called medina, bordered by modern part of Gueliz. Today it is one of the busiest cities in Africa. Marrakech city has the largest traditional Berber market / souk in Morocco. It has around 18 souks selling wares ranging from traditional Berber carpets.

 Marrakech climae is a hot semi-arid climate and average temperatures range from 12 °C (54 °F) in the winter to 32–45 °C (90–113 °F) in the summer.



Jemaa el-Fnaa square is one of the best-known squares in Africa. It is the centre of city activity and trade and it has been described as a "world-famous square". Jamma el Fna square has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage site since 1985. Marrakech has the largest traditional Berber market in Morocco and the image of the city is closely associated with its souks.  The ramparts of Marrakech were built by the Almoravids in the 12th century as protective fortifications.


The Menara gardens are located at the gates of the Atlas mountains and they were built around 1130. The name menara derives from the pavilion with its small green pyramid roof (menzeh). That pavilion and a nearby artificial lake are surrounded by orchards and olive groves. The lake was created to irrigate the surrounding gardens and orchards using a sophisticated system of underground channels called a qanat. The basin is supplied with water through an old hydraulic system which conveys water from the mountains located approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi) away from Marrakesh.
