Marrakesh known as the "Red City" Marrakesh is the capital of the south. The atmosphere is distinctly more African than that of the other Imperial cities, Fez, Rabat and Meknes. The setting of the city is stunning with ochre stucco buildings surrounded by the snow-peaked Atlas mountains. If you have the time, Marrakesh is definitely worth a stay of several days.
Marrakesh was founded in the 11-th century by the Almoravides. Coming from the south, from the Mauritanian desert, these fierce warriors of the faith, made a capital in the lush valley on the foot of the Atlas mountains.
