Top sigths of Morocco
The city of Marrakech is an important tourist destination. The so-called historic part of the city is naturally the most attractive one for tourists. The central part of the city is the location of the Koutoubia Mosque, the building of which took place in the 12th century. The beautiful minaret, the height of which is 77 metres, remains the main peculiarity of this mosque. Jemaa el-Fnaa Square is located right in front of it. All biggest streets of Marrakech start from the square. During a walk here you will see beautiful palaces, museums and mosques, but large and bustling bazaars still remain the main distinctive feature of the city. Local bazaars are usually bound to a specific type of a product, and one can find virtually anything there. There are bazaars that specialize in spices, leather goods, markets for historical artefacts and clothes, and, of course, food bazaars.
