Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Golfing and tours in Marrakech

by welovefrance11

We stayed and did some golfing in the Palmaraie Golf Club, it was quite a good experience with nice views of the green and the surrounding regions. We also pre-booked some tours before we left France, we did both quad biking and horse riding in the palm grove of Marrakech - we highly recommend this experience to all! And also we did a day trip to a place called the ourika valley (waterfalls and atlas mountain views), where we had our lunch near the waterfalls :).
We used a company (www.marrakech-loisirs.com) we came across through a good friend of ours.
All in all our experience of both the golfing and tours where really good and would recommend others to give it a try.
The green fees are like anywhere in europe sometimes cheaper.

The Oldest University in the World?

by aaaarrgh

You will see postcards around Marrakech of the series of Moorish arches spanning a narrow street. They mark the entrance to Medersa Ali ben Youssef. It lies at the very northern edge of the souq area, next door to the Ali ben Youssef Mosque.

The Medersa was once a great college of theology and religious law. Our Moroccan guide told us that it was part of the oldest university in the world, dating from the 9th century. You can believe this if you want! The present building was constructed in 1565, and Marrakech was apparently founded in 1062. Islam had spread across the whole of North Africa by the 7th century, so maybe the guide was right.

Medersa Ali ben Youssef surrounds a grand courtyard. Very tranquil, very cool, with a shallow stone pool. The lower walls are decorated with mosaic, showing the many different stars of the Islamic religion. The upper walls are covered with intricate stucco work. The roof is made of carved cedar wood.

The upper floors that look out over the courtyard are filled with dozens of tiny cells, to house the students. You can go into almost all of them. A few are furnished.

There is a small shop selling postcards and souvenirs. The entrance fee is very cheap, I can't remember exactly how much - we visited as part of a wider tour of the old city!

Koutoubia Minaret, Mosque & Gardens

by sue_stone

The tallest structure in Marrakech is the Koutoubia Minaret. Dating back to the 12th century, it is a fine example of Moorish architecture, and a symbol of the city. At around 70 metres high, it makes an excellent marker for tourists to help them orientate themselves. On top of the minaret are three golden balls made from copper - rumour has it that the original balls were made from gold.

The Koutoubia mosque was first built in 1147, but was then demolished and re-built soon after because it was not correctly aligned with Mecca. You can see some remains of the original mosque in the surrounding Koutoubia Gardens. The gardens make a nice place for a stroll and enable you to have a closer look at the minaret.

Five times a day the 'call to prayer' rings out across the city from the top of the minaret, with speakers facing every direction to ensure that all muslims know when they should be praying.

Non Muslims cannot visit the interior of the mosque or minaret, so the closest you will get is a visit to the gardens. But you can see the minaret from all over Marrakech so an up-close visit isn't mandatory.

a so called study trip

by The-Joker

It was a so called study trip during one week on European - Marocco cooperation - well, starting on Monday after 2 hours I was in the swiming pool, then in the souk -

Went to la Manounia, charming diner there, then to the casino, saw some famous French actors there one of them very drunk who was asking for help - in fact he was asking that someone prevents him from playing
