So like it was mentioned above, your tour will start by the Majorelle Garden which is one of the most visited sites in Morocco.
It took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years of passion and dedication to create this delightful garden in the heart of the “Ochre City”.
In 1947 he opened his gardens to the public and, through this period he also painted a glorious ceiling at The Mamounia hotel.
Afterwards we will be heading to The Koutoubia Mosque which is the largest one in Marrakesh; the mosque is ornamented with curved windows, a band of ceramic inlay, and decorative arches with a large plaza overflowing with magnificent gardens.
Once we finish with this historical mosque we will head to the Jewish quarter or Mellah Founded in 1558 by Moulay Abdallah, your guide will be walking you through this entire district and giving you a full resume concerning the history of this area personifying the Jewish culture and presence in Morocco.
Your tour will continue on to the Saadian Tomb which dates back to the Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur (1578-1603) and which were only discovered in 1917.
Once discovered they were restored by the Beaux-Arts service and because of the beauty of their decoration, they have been a major attraction for visitors in Marrakech.
