The alleyways of the Medina
When you first arrive in the Medina you wonder how you will ever find your way around.The network of alleyways is something i have not come across before.Some of the alleyways are a bit daunting especially at night,although i never felt threatened at any time.Watch out for the moped rider or cyclist who appear out of nowhere with only inches between you and them.Many of the riads are situated in the alleyways and it is a challenge finding your way back especially by night.
- Hiking and Walking
When we came out of the Sadiaan Tombs, we bumped into a tour guide who was a local man we asked him to direct us to the palace he took us through some narrow passage ways past a womans mosque and we saw a storks nest, as well as some local bakerys and shops, we didn't have time to stay around there, it was like a maze. we ended up going through a shop but we were lost so decided to walk back towards the city square. That was an adventure.
Covered streets in the souqs
You just have to get lost in the souqs. You can't even see the sky which will make you feel weird when comming out of it. You then see the strong sun shining while being used for a couple of hours inside the souq with great shadow.
In summer time the average temperatura is above 40 degrees celcius and this type of coverage is essencial to smoth the temperature a little bit.
The most common materials to cover the souqs are palm fronds.
Souq Es Sraane
This is one of the entries to the Souq of Essraane inside the huge labirinth of the old medina of Marrakesh. Inside you hava a couple of worshops that produce some good that are to be sold in shops within the medina and also a painters workshop.
A lot of hotels around Djemma El-Fna and other areas in the medina have terraces that you can get great views of the city.
