The core of the Berber culture, Marrakech is a fascinating city, offering several historical, architectural sites and some interesting museums. One of the most important tourist attraction is the Jemaa el Fna, Morocco's UNESCO-recognised platform for halqa (street theatre). Musicians, dancers, and story tellers pack this square at the heart of the medina (old city). Towering over the scene is the stately Koutoubia minaret, a simbol of the Hispano-Mauresque architecture. Afterwards, relax in the Majorelle Gardens admiring the collection of plants from across the globe. Inside the gardens you will find the Museum of Islamic Art, that is also well worth a visit. Don't miss the Dar Si Said Museum, housing a wide range of artifacts from Morocco including a collection of popular art: carpets, clothing, pottery, wood carvings and ceramics, and El Bahia palace with its nice garden.
