Ben Youssef Medersa Courtyard

Modern and cosmopolitan, this former Imperial City claims a long, at times turbulent, history. Home to Berber tribes since ancient times, it blossomed under the Almoravid dynasty whose empire spread as far as Spain in the 12th century, was destroyed and rebuilt under strict religious rule by the Almohads, then neglected for over 200 years by their successors before enjoying a new golden age when the Saadians came to power in the 16th century. The current dynasty of the Alaouites is headed by King Mohammed VI. Splendid palaces, fabulous gardens, mosques and religious schools, Marrakech displays the glorious legacy of a roller-coaster past.
