The city of Marrakech in southern Morocco has been said to symbolise the country as a whole. As a vibrant and colourful centre for culture and entertainment, Marrakech is renowned for its wonderful climate, arts, gardens, ornate palaces, bustling souks (markets), and lively festivals. For those in search of the 'real' Morocco, this is the place to come.
Nestling at the foot of the High Atlas Mountains, within ancient city walls, surrounded by look-out towers and ramparts, Marrakech comprises a densely packed maze of narrow streets and alleyways. Jemaa el-Fnaa Square lies at the heart of the city, and where the Berber tribes people come to sell their wares, and storytellers, acrobats, and entertainers attract the crowds.
Just a five minute walk from the celebrated Jemaa el-Fnaa square, Riad Al Assala enjoys a superb location and boasts one of the best views in Marrakech from its rooftop, gazing out to the stunning Atlas Mountains and the famous Koutoubia.
