Medina of Marrakesh

Inside the Ramparts
Marrakech is one of Morocco's indisputable jewels, and its souks have been attracting visitors—and shoppers—for centuries. The heart of the old medina is the Djemaa el Fna, a public square out of the pages of One Thousand and One Nights, with snake charmers, musicians, acrobats, and open-air restaurants. This lively street culture contrasts with the beautiful minaret of the nearby 12th-century Koutoubia Mosque, which speaks to the city's tradition of learning as well as trade.
