Places to visit in Marrakech 

A visit to Morocco is incomplete without a trip to Marrakech. Every artist, nature lover, or traveler who wants to explore the world in Africa would yearn to spend some time here. If you are ready to land there, don't forget to check out the following places. 

1. The Riad Barbmar

To experience the cultural beauty of Morocco, visiting The Riad Barbmar hotel is a must. The interior garden with beautiful exotic plants to highlight Morocco's cultural and living norms is one of its kind. You may not get to visit the local houses in Morocco, so it is better to sit under a roof where you can understand it properly. 

2. Jema el fenna 

This is the central square of the city. Shop anything you want, from the indigenous items to the modern exported stuff. This is the ever green vibrant spot of the city. If you are someone from the west, you must definitely visit this Bazar to understand the imaginary fiction of Aladdin and other eastern stories.

3. Koutoubia mosque 

What else can be better to witness the Moroccan architecture than the mosques? There are several beautiful mosques in Marrakech, but this one is an exceptional masterpiece. Non-muslims are not allowed to enter the mosque: but they can undoubtedly study and enjoy the panoramic scenery of such an amazing wonder of architecture. 

4. Saddian tomb 

These were the tombs that remained undiscovered for a long time. Later in the 20th century, the world gets to know about these. They are still raw, comprising the graves of 66 kings, princes, and family members of the Saddin dynasty.
