What you can’t miss in Marrakesh
When I landed in Marrakech, I immediately left the luggage at the Riad because I wanted to reach Jemaa el Fna, and to enjoy the sunset there. I had already checked that the main square was 20 minutes away from the hotel, however I had considered 1 hour to get there. You never know! In fact, I didn’t know the labyrinth of the suk, where you lose the spatial coordinates and immerge yourself in a busy colorful world. It seems impossible to know the way, but locals know even the short-cuts. So, when I reached the biggest square of the whole Africa, I felt like I have found a treasure, hidden by the labyrinth.
The following day, I meant to visit all the main spots of Marrakech, like YSL’s house, El Badi Palace, and the Saadian Tombs. The city is quite small and so it’s easy to visit its main attractions in one day by foot. I wasn’t really interested in these touristic spots, but they draw a way across all the town, so that you can lose yourself in the Moroccan reality.
The third day in Morocco was the adventurous one. In the morning, I went to the Atlas Mountain by a Jeep to make trekking passing by the ‘Seven Waterfalls’. I found out that just a week before there was one meter of snow, but when I was there the temperature was like spring. But before reaching the mountains, I made two stops. The first one, at a factory which produces argan oil and where I bought some wellness product, of course. (click to know what to buy in Morocco) here The second one, at a Bedouin village. After the trip, I had a Moroccan massage in a hammam.
Here I was where Churchill used to stay when in Morocco. There is also a living room dedicated to him. You should have at least a mint tea there.
