Marrakech 'The Red City'

April 20, 2018

Marrakech is known as the ‘Red City’ thanks to the blush-coloured walls that surrounding it. The bricks are made from tabia, which is a mixture of red mud and water from the Hazou plains. But anyone who’s been to the city will know that its nickname doesn’t do it justice. Red is just one colour in Marrakech’s kaleidoscope. Bright spices are piled up in pyramids, freshly-dyed carpets hang from the sides of stalls, and silver lamps glint with the promise of a genie inside. Jemaa el-Fna is Africa’s biggest square. The market place is alive with snake charmers, story tellers and potion sellers. The Jardin Majorelle is one of the most visited sites in Morocco too. It took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) fourty years of passion and dedication to create this enchanting garden.
