Morocco

The low, red walls that surround the thousand-year-old Medina of Marrakesh seem to protect the city from time itself. Within these ramparts you will find relatively few monumental structures and a surprising abundance of foreign tourists, but there remains a certain magic in this city of mosques and markets, of sufis and storytellers.

Everyone comes to Marrakech having heard tales of its network of souqs, the largest of its kind in Morocco, and those who arrive with the sole aim of shopping will not leave disappointed. An avid shopper in Moroccan ware will leave loaded down with carpets, scarves and embossed leather goods among the finest on earth.

Royal Mansour

Royal Mansour

Like the city that surrounds it, the Royal Mansour defies overstatement. Surrounded by high walls like those of the medina, the Royal Mansour is a refuge of supreme luxury in one of the world’s most magical cities. Outside, the ancient mercantile center of Marrakech continues as it has for centuries, its narrow souqs still home to salesmen of every stripe, the Djemma el Fna still redolent of grilling meat, still filled with snake charmers and storytellers.
