    Situated near the foothills of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is divided into 2 parts. The Medina is the historic part of the city, full of character and intricately connected alleyways stuffed with vendors and stalls. The newer European district known as Gueliz is home to modern restaurants, fast food chains and big box stores.

Marrakech’s old medina is the ancient walled section of town with narrow streets that are often reserved for pedestrians, donkeys, horses, and the occasional motorcycle or taxi whizzing by. Within the medina, you’ll find historic buildings with antique doors and windows alongside more modern buildings.

More than 800 years old, Marrakech’s medina is surrounded by a 12-mile-long protective wall and ramparts. In addition, 22 impressive gates provide various entry and exit points in and out of the medina. The clay wall’s signature orange-red hue gives Marrakech its nickname “The Red City.”

From buzzing markets and colorful souks to intricately decorated riads, Marrakech remains Morocco�s most vibrant city and a popular spot for tourists looking to soak up the country�s lively culture.
