Another rooftop café opens at 9am. Here you can find traditional Moroccan food and excellent tea. We start a brand new day!
Quite young (1880) Palace Bahia in translation means "Palace of Beauty". The palace in the Moorish style is well preserved and covers an area of eight hectares.
It’s fast and tasty. There are vegetarian dishes in this place.
There are much fewer tourists here than in the Bahia Palace, but beautiful as well. You should look into the wedding room. Be careful – it doesn’t work on Tuesdays! Here you will find an excellent collection of Moroccan fine arts.
Nowadays, you can see only the walls of the courtyard and take a stroll through the magnificent orange garden. Even in ruined form, the palace looks unusually beautiful. The most amazing part of the architecture is the courtyard, which demonstrates all the wealth of its owners. The courtyard became the largest in Marrakech because its size is about 15 thousand square meters. The yard was so huge that all the buildings surrounding it seem very narrow.
Jemaa el Fna is never completely deserted, it's calm here only in the early morning. At daytime, the square is filled with peddlers of water in colourful clothes, fortune-tellers, fakirs, storytellers. Nearby traders sell fruits, sweets and souvenirs.
Roofs, roofs, roofs again, the sunset and very tasty food!
