Café Des Épices

Now you can have a breakfast on the roof in Marrakech. What could be better?

Medersa Ben Youssef

History Museums

The Madrasah of Ben Youssef is an architectural masterpiece of the Merinid era. In the distant 1570, at the mausoleum of Ben Youssef, the most important school was opened, which later became the most prestigious school in the Maghreb to study the Koran and it practically preserved its original appearance to the present day. Over the past four centuries, the Madrasah of Ben Youssef has been the centre of the religious life of Morocco. Here you can walk for hours, studying all the details of its architecture.

Spice Souks

Other Great Outdoors

It’s a real Arabic market of spices (and not only). Do you need more comments?

Le Jardin Secret

Historic Sites

This is a real hidden pearl. It is an oasis of tranquility and silence in the center of the city. It’s a must-visit place. You can also buy a ticket here and climb the tower to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.

le jardin

Google shows that the restaurant next to the garden is in 20 minutes on foot, but that’s not true. In fact, it’s just around the corner. However you can walk around as long as you wish, walk up your appetite.

Musée de Marrakech

Art Museums

The museum is located in the palace of the 19th century. The exposition is not big, the exhibits are not as interesting as the local mosaic.

Maison de la Photographie


This is a bomb for photography lovers! Most of the vintage photos can be bought as a reprint to hang it at home on the wall, for example. The atmosphere is amazing here and you can climb to the roof to enjoy the sunset.


Moroccan Restaurants

According to the route, today's dinner will also be on a roof. Just in case, it’s better to book a table in advance. Your hotel staff can help you with this.
