"The Old Medina" Souks Tip by mafi_moya

Souks, Marrakesh: 54 reviews and 125 photos


The Medina is like a step back hundreds of years, to narrow alleys ringing with the sounds of blacksmiths and clucking chickens, with donkey pulled carts and men in Berber cloaks. Compared to the spacious Ville Nouvelle it's claustrophobic and chaotic but teeming with life and a fascinating walk round. When the sun goes down it's plunged into darkness and the alleyways become an impenetrable narrow maze.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
