The visit of the monuments and tourist places is done by foot and accompanied by an official guide of the city.


The guided tour includes the visit of:

LA KOUTOUBIA, one of the wonders of Almohad art that is located in the center of the city, where formerly there was a stone palace called “Ksar AL HAJJAR”.

PALACIO BAHÍA built in the s. XIX as the residence of the Sultan. Bahia means bright, in fact in the XIX century the Moroccans thought they had built the greatest palace of all time. To get there, we will cross the flea market of the Kasbah, the Jewish Quarter (El malah), the Souk of the Species and the Badia Square.

LAS TUMBAS SAADÍES, one of the most visited places in Marrakech. These tombs date from the end of the 16th century and are located in a closed garden that is accessed through a small hallway. After the entrance, we find mausoleums of great beauty, decorated with mosaics, and different tombs that keep the remains of buried sultans, warriors and servants of the Saadí dynasty.

On this tour, we will enter the ZOCO and we will also visit the BEN YOUSSEF MADRAZA, built in the 16th century and one of the most important Koranic schools. In it, her students lived in austere cells while they finished their religious studies. The most beautiful part of the visit is its inner courtyard with its architecture and mosaics, in harmony with the central pond used to perform the ablutions before the prayer. Here visitors will find extreme tranquility, after having passed through the hustle and bustle of the streets of the Medina.

GARDEN MAJORELLE, this garden was built by the painter Jacques Majorelle and was created as he would create a work of art. As a curiosity, today we speak frequently of the color “bleu Majorelle” in honor of the blue used in the walls and in some details of the garden. In the 80s the mythical designer Yves Saint-Laurent acquired it and increased the amount of plant species to more than 300. It became his favorite corner, and the place where he wanted is ashes to be scattered between bamboos and water lilies.

And finally, the DJEMAA EL FNA PLAZA, which is the central square of Marrakech and the most important place in the medina. Is the center of the public life of Marrakech during the day and night. The best thing about DJemaa el Fna Square is the transformation that is going on during the day.
