More about the landmarks of Marrakech
Located in the Hawz, an agricultural plain bounded to the south and east by the High Atlas mountains, and watered by the Tansift river, Marrakech is situated in a natural site of great potential.
The landmarks of Marrakech consist of many different sections and specificities. So let’s hear more about them.
The plazas and squares of Marrakech were used for public executions and decapitations by the rulers to maintain their power by frightening the people, they were used for trading, and dwellers from the surrounding desert and mountains were coming for that purpose.
In the present the plazas and squares attract people from a diversity of social and ethnic backgrounds and tourists from all around the world. Snake charmers, acrobats, magicians, mystics, musicians, monkey trainers, herb sellers, story-tellers, dentists, pickpockets, and entertainers in medieval garb still populate the square. Jemaa el-Fnaa is known as a world-famous square and a bridge between the past and the present. It is a region where the Moroccan culture takes place for centuries and the tradition encounters modernity.
Other than plazas and squares, Marrakech has a lot of souks which are marketplaces or commercial quarters in Western Asian and North African cities. Selling anything from brightly coloured bejewelled sandals and slippers and leather pouffes to jewellery and kaftans, these souks are a tradition keeper landmark of Marrakech.
The Palaces and riads include the Badi, the Royal and the Bahia Palace, and the most famous Mosques involve The Koutoubia Mosque, The Ben Youssef Mosque, and The Mouassine Mosque.
The Synagogues of Marrakech include Synagogue Beth-El, Synagogue Salat el Azama, and Synagogue Salat Rabi Pinhasse.
Tombs and burial grounds are also a well-known specific of the city and The Saadian Tombs and The Seven Saints Tombs are one of the most famous ones.

A hot semi-arid climate predominates at Marrakesh. The average temperatures range from 12 °C (54 °F) in the winter to 32–45 °C (90–113 °F) in the summer. The climate is characterized with relatively wet winter and extremely dry summer. The region of Marrakesh is frequently described as desert in character, but the north side of the Atlas, rather than the south, forbids it from being described as a desert city.
