Koutoubia Mosque is the city’s most popular symbol. It is a structure with traditional Almohad style, and has four globes of copper. It is a place for worship that’s why non-Muslims may not be allowed to enter. However, tourists can revel in its exterior view from the outside.
If you want to take home some traditional fabrics from Marrakech, Akbar Delights is the place to go. In here, you can find an array of dresses, cotton robes, shoulder bags, scarves and a lot more. Most of the products are usually from Kashmir.
Among the two principal structures of the Saadian era is Badii Palace, which was built by Sultan Ahmed El-Mansour. What remains of the structure are ruins, however, it was a great site encrusted with gold from Timbuktu before. It is definitely a must-visit.
