Sitting in the shadows of the mighty snow-clad peaks of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is not only one of Morocco’s most aesthetic cities, but also one of its most lively and exciting. It has remained at the heart of Moroccan life for over 1000 years, acting as Sultanate capital on occasions, but now undoubtedly as the country’s cultural centre.
