📝 Marrakech, founded in 1062 by Abu Bakr ibn Umar and located in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, is the ultimate tourist destination in Morocco. Do not be fooled by this statement, as the city does remain completely alienated from its numerous visitors. Marrakech has thrived through tourism for centuries, while its religiousness, commercial trade and education combine to offer its visitors a truly one-of-a-kind destination. Marrakech is exotic, unbelievable and probably one of the most unique cities in the world. There are plenty of palaces, monuments, caravanserais and 18 major markets – the famous souks of the medina. Marrakesh’s old town is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
