  1. Ksar Kasbah and Spa

  2. Jardin Majorelle
    This incredibly vibrant garden is the work of Jacques Majorelle, and was actually snapped up by Yves Saint Laurent, who worked towards restoring it in order to have the public be able to walk through and marvel at its beauty.
  3. Ben Youssef Madrasa
    Formerly one of the top universities in Northern Africa, today this stunning display of architecture functions as an Islamic historical site. The incredible intricacies of the design and large reflective pool in the madrasa’s courtyard are two hallmarks of this must-see spot.
  4. La Caverne Artisanal
    You will be wowed by the incredible light display put on in this shop in Marrakech’s Medina, which specialises in high quality copper lighting. People flock to the shop for photos surrounded by the exquisite works of craftsmanship that light up its interior.
