    Stop At: Koutoubia Mosque, Rue el Ksour, Derb Sabai, 13, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

    The city of Marrakech was captured by the Almohads after the death of the Almoravid leader Ali ibn Yusuf in 1147. The Almohads wanted no trace of religious monuments built by the Almoravids, their bitter enemies, because they considered them heretics. Abd-al-Mu’min, who won the territory, was responsible for the construction of the first Koutoubiya mosque on the grounds of the former palace of Ali ibn Yusuf in the southwest quarter of the medina. This first mosque was built between 1147 and 1154 and completed in 1157. This first mosque was rebuilt under the Almohad Caliph Yacoub El-Mansour, because halfway through construction, the mihrab (prayer niche) was off center and not oriented towards Mecca and underwent many changes until the end of the 12th century. When the Andalusians defeated the Almohad dynasty. The alignment problem was a minor problem, as devotees could always adjust the direction when offering prayers in the hall, but the decision was made to build a new mosque next to the first structure. The first mosque was completed while the second mosque was under construction. The second mosque was built identical to the first except for its orientation.

    The layout, architectural designs, inscriptions, dimensions and materials used for construction were all the same. The plan and design of the minaret remained the same in both buildings. While in the first mosque, the orientation of the mihrab was 5 degrees out of alignment with the direction of Mecca, in the second mosque, the orientation was 10 degrees, therefore further from Mecca than the first mosque.

    These two structures were built during the reign of Abd al-Mu’min (reign 1130-1163). The second mosque was started after 1154 and the building was partially completed in September 1158, with the first prayers held in the mosque at that time. It was completed in the 1190s, although the reported completion dates vary between 1162, 1190 and 1199. The first mosque eventually deteriorated.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Palacio da Bahia, 5 Rue Riad Zitoun el Jdid, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

    The beginnings of the construction of the Bahia Palace date back to the time of Minister Ahmed bin Musa, nicknamed “Ba Hammad”, during the reign of Sultan Abdulaziz. His father, Al-Hajib Al-Sultani, Haji Musa, was nicknamed “Al-Bukhari” because he was descended from the servants of Al-Bukhari who made up the army of the Alawite sultan Moulay Ismail.

    As for the name of the palace, it perpetuates the name of the minister’s wife, “Ba Hammad”. According to current tales, the “Bahia”, whose name is the palace, descended from the al-Rahmanah tribe, which borders the city of Marrakech, and who came from a family known for its knowledge, its glory and its power.
    The narrators mention that Bahia was moving from her father’s castle in the Rahamneh region to the family riad in the “Al-Qanariya” district in Marrakech, until the strong minister “Ba Ahmad” saw him while he was still in the prime of life, in the care of his father, Hajj Musa Al-Hajib, so he hired her to be “His life partner, the lady of his palates, the comfort of his wives, the head of his neighborhood, his service and his decency, ”says one of the narrators.

    And given the gravity of his affection for Bahia, Minister Ahmed bin Musa brought the most skilled craftsmen and craftsmen from the city of Fez to work in the palace for six consecutive years, but death died without seeing his palace embrace the Bahia in its most beautiful analysis. He died in 1890 before completing the construction of the palace.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Bab Agnaou, Rue Oqba Ben Nafaa, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Kasbah Mosque, Rue de La Kasbah, Marrakech Morocco

    The Kasbah Mosque of Marrakech is a Friday Mosque originally built by the Almohad caliph Yaqub al-Mansour in 1185-1190 CE. It is located in the old kasbah of Marrakech, the citadel or royal district. Along with the Koutoubia Mosque, it is one of the most important historical mosques in Marrakech

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Saadian Tombs, Rue De La Kasbah, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

    Located next to the mosque of the Kasbah, the Saadian tombs are one of the only vestiges remaining from the Saadian dynasty which reigned on the golden age of Marrakech between 1524 to 1659. At the beginning of the 18th century, Sultan Moulay Ismaïl indeed decided to remove all traces of the magnificence of this dynasty by asking for the destruction of all the remaining vestiges. However, he did not dare to commit the sacrilege to destroy their graves and ordered that the entrance to the necropolis be walled up.

    The Menara gardens are botanical gardens located to the west of Marrakech, Morocco, near the Atlas Mountains.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Jemaa el-Fnaa, 38 Jemaa el-Fna, Rue El Ksour, Marrakech Morocco

    There is nowhere in Morocco like Jemaa el Fna square – no place that so easily involves you and keeps you coming back for more. By day, most of the square is just a large open space, where a handful of snake charmers bewitch their cobras with flutes, medicine men (especially in the northeastern part of the place) display cures and Panacea, and pulling teeth, wielding fearsome tongs, offer to tear off the pain of the outside of the heads of people suffering from toothache, trays of extracts attesting molar their skills.

    It is only in the afternoon that the square really happens. At dusk, as in France and Spain, people go out for a walk early evening (especially in Bab Agnaou street), and the place fills gradually until it becomes a fairytale carnival, acrobats, musicians and artists. Go down and you will soon be immersed in the ritual: wandering around, squatting in the circles of spectators, which gives a dirham or two as your contribution. If you want a respite, you can move on the roof terraces, like the Grand Balcony Café, for a view of the square, its storytellers and musicians, and the crowds who come to see them.

    As a foreigner in Jemâa, you may feel something of an intruder. Most of the crowd are Moroccan of course (some foreigners, for example, will include storytellers’ tales), but tourists also make a significant contribution to both the atmosphere and the cash flow. Sometimes a storyteller or musician may take it upon you to participate or contribute generously to the end-of-show collection and, entering the show, it’s best to go bare-bones of the usual tourist outlines such as watches, money belts or too much money; pickpockets and crooks work (giving a “present” and demanding payment as it is an old scam to be wary of, ask tourists to change counterfeit euro coins is a more recent version) .

    Tourist attractions include bottle hoop games, fortune tellers sitting under umbrellas with divination card packs ready and women with piping bags full of henna paste, ready to paint their hands, feet or arms with “tattoos” that will last up to three months, beware if synthetic “black henna”, which contains a toxic chemical; that red henna is natural (Café Henné guarantees to use only natural henna).
